Why not use -proportion- which allows -pweight-s and then store the results
via -ssc d parmest-. Save it with -parmest- as .dta and -gsort -estimates-
afterwards. Then -list- and you have your table...

Example (w/o pweights):

************
cap ssc inst parmest
sysuse auto, clear
prop r
parmest, saving(myfile, replace)
u myfile, clear
drop  eq parm dof t p
gsort -est
l
************

Dear Statalisters,

I have a list of binomial variables where 1 means that the individual
has a determined disease. I need a table where proportions (and their
confidence intervals) of these variables (diseases) appear in
descending order. Although tab1 has a sort option, my data belong to a
survey where pweights are used, and tab1 only accepts fweights (that
need to be integers, which is not the case).

Any alternative?

Many thanks.
