svyset Q1170_02 *this is the weight variable

It should start: svyset psu_variable [pweight= weightvariable] On Nov 18, 2008, at 11:26 AM, Daniel Schultz wrote:

Hej stata user.... Maybe this question is too easy for you, but i am kicking it around since a week ore so and couldn't find a proper solution. I have a dataset with 1200 variables of a survey. This survey was held over a couple of years. What I want to do is extracting a codebook of the dataset.Therefore every variable should be tabbed according to theirsurveyweight.The variable structure looks like this: Q0001_02 Q0001_07 Q0002_02 Q0002_03 Q0002_07 etc. Were the extension _0X indicates the year and the Prefix Qaaaa indicates the question number, which is the same over the years. Since I need the tables afterwards in an extrenal program (LaTex) all the Variables should be proceed in the correct order. The problem is, that not every question was asked in every year, that I really need to change the survey weight after every variable for the new variable, depending on the extension. I tried a lot, but couldn't get a proper solution. For only one Variable the syntax should be as followed: svyset Q1170_02 *this is the weight variable svy:tab Q0001_02 I tried to build a loop based on this, but all my tries didn't work. Maybe one of you has an idea. That would be great.
