Dear Statalisters,

I'm producing a general report (lots of tables and graphs) on the
results of a survey where weigts were used. Appart from percentages
and confidence intervals, I would like to add sample sizes, but I'm in
doubt about reporting weighted cell counts or number of observations
(unweighted). In principle, I'm for reporting weighted cell counts
(many readers would dislike than frequencies and sample sizes do not
match), but number of observations may be very relevant when there are
very few 'measured' individuals in some cells. Any thoughts about
that?

In any case, is it possible to make Stata suppres frequencies in
svy:table when ,obs are asked? (I've found that the option nofreq for
tabulate twoway is not allowed in svy:tab).

Many thanks,

Ángel
