I am using the svy mean command to calculate survey weighted state-specific mean estimates of different Mexican state characteristics, for example the percent of the population in a specific Mexican state that is indigenous

Thus, I use the following command line: svy: mean indigena, over(state)

And want to save these mean estimates (by state) as I would if I did an by state, sort: egen mean(indigena)--that was not accounting for the survey design; so my question is, how do I save the mean estimates by state from the above svy command line: svy: mean indigena, over(ent)??  And/or how do i save mean estimates for this that does take the svy pweight into account in the proper manner (if I can't do it with svy: mean)? [I want to then drop people from my dataset but want to have all the state estimates of characteristics saved as variables before doing so].
