Hi all together,

I have maybe a more theoretical question rather than a practical. I am estimating time series data with a SUR model in Stata. Since my data is not stationary I differenced it. Does anybody know whether this is allowed in a SUR model or whether I have to proceed with the error correction model now?
Thank you for your comments

To describe your sample, use ordinary, non-survey, commands. Survey commands are intended to estimate characteristics of the sampled population, not the sample itself. To me, the most important descriptor of a sample cell is the number of observations.

I am using svy commands to analyze a DHS dataset.

As a usual prerequisite, I want to run some descriptive statistics on
my sample. I can use the regular tabulate or fre command to produce
frequency distributions.

However, I realized that svy has a "tabulate" or "proportions" option
that could produce frequency distributions/estimates per variable. I
run both and realized slight differences between the two frequencies

Which one should I use - I am leaning towards using the one with the
svy: prefix.

I would appreciate any thoughts and pointers.

thanks - CY.
