Hi everyone,

I have a simple question about survey data. I'd like to report the 
basic statistic description for a survey data set. But the commands 
like --sum --fsum can't use the option of pweight (probability weight). 
What can be used is either fweigtht or aweight. 

Could anyone help me with the following questions? 

1) How should I get the basic statistics for a survey data which the 
sampling weight is known?

2) Now I have no information of strata or cluster. What I only know is 
the sampling weight assigned to each individual. When I just use 
pweight to do OLS regressions with svy command, should the 
missing-strata--and--cluster problem be a concern ?

Thanks for your help!

Mandy
