Leonor-

Consider the following 2 x 2 table with n=50 for pension =1 Participate 1 0 Total Males 5 15 20 Females 10 20 30 Total 15 35 50 This translate into the following table of proportions: Participate 1 0 Total Males .1 .3 .4 Females .2 .4 .6 Total .3 .7 1.0

Just out of curiosity. Why not: -proportion male female ifparticipating ==1 & pension == 1- and compare the resulting CIs? The -if- statementrecordswhat is common to both groups, namely that they participate andthat theydraw a pension.

I was looking in the Stata FAQS and found that this was posible with the - suest - command, but when I use it, it doesn´t work and I don´t know what´s wrong. I´appreciate if you could give me some advice. My dummy variables are like this: act_m = (participating == 1 & male == 1) ; 0 otherwise act_f = (participating == 1 & female == 1) ; 0 otherwise pension = 1 if recieves a pension; 0 otherwise And I need to compare the 'act_m' mean when 'pension' == 1 with the mean of 'act_f' when 'pension' == 1. What I was doing was (and didn´t work): svyset folio [pw = factor]mean act_m if (hm3_hym == 1 & menor15h == 1) [fw = factorex], over(pension)est store act_m1mean act_f if (hm3_hym == 1 & menor15h == 1) [fw = factorex], over(pension)est sto act_f1 suest act_m1 act_f1,svy test [act_m1]pensionh [act_h1]pensionh The error that Stata brings is: suest act_m1 act_h1,svy unable to generate scores for model act_m1 suest requires that predict allow the score option r(322); Well, I´d appreciate very much your help! :) LeonorThank you so much Austin!.....
