If they are fweights, then do the t-test with -anova-

Hello Statalisters,

Im comparing the mean of a sample by group, this is, comparing the
mean of the income earned for males and females. Im using the Stata -
ttest - command, but im a bit confused because this command doesnt
allows using weights (fweights) and I think that this affects the
results, doesnt it?
Do you know another way to compare the means of the sample using weights?

Id really appreciate your comments.

Thank you,

Leonor
