as a follow up, I just found what changed here: http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?whatsnew 13. sts list does not support standard errors and confidence intervals when the data are stset with pweights. However, when option at() was also specified, standard errors and confidence intervals were reported, but these were inappropriate for sampling-weighted data. As such, they are no longer reported. Is there any way to get the correct SEs then?

I am using standard commands -stset- and -sts list- to obtain the estimates of the survivor function and corresponding standard errors. If I include weights in the stset command in Stata 10, I don't get the standard errors of the survival probabilities. I wonder if this situation is because: a) it is not possible for some (not obvious) statistical reasons b) it is not implemented c) it is implemented but reporting is suppressed for some reason d) an unfavoured case of a b.u.g. I couldn't find any warning in the manual regarding this. Weights are particularly described on page 433 of the printed manual [ST] (version 10.0). And pweights were specifically mentioned as supported. Below is an example of why I think d) might be the case (because SEs are computed in Stata 9, but not in Stata 10). The reason I think of a) is that if I try to access SEs via sts generate newvar = se(s) both Stata 9 and Stata 10 tell me se(s) not possible with pweighted data r(404); I would appreciate if someone could explain how to get SEs of the survival function in a dataset with pweights and stratification if it is possible in Stata 10? It seems to be possible, as mentioned, say, here (Analyzing Health Equity Using Household Survey Data, A guide to tehniques and their implementation, page 33 (46 of 234)): http://www.dcp2.org/file/146/Analyzing%20Health%20Equity%20Using%20Household%20Survey%20Data.pdf but in light that Stata now does not report them, should the old estimates be revised?
