First of all it is better to respond to the list than to individual members privately, as is discussed on the statalist FAQ, point 5: http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/statalist.html#private As to question 1: -tab- allows weights, see: -help tab-. As to question 2: In that case you probably want to do a logistic regression, with fridge type as an explanatory variable.
