Rebecca, You can use the -svmat- command to create a variable from a matrix. From the examples given previously webuse highschool, clear svyset county [pweight=sampwgt], strata(state) vce(linearized) svy: mean weight, over(sex) matrix means = e(b) matrix list means svmat means // <-- This line creates two new variables I hope this is helpful. -- Matt matt.spittal@cancervic.org.au On 8/4/09 10:30 AM, "Kanter, Rebecca" <rkanter@jhsph.edu> wrote: > Joao, > Thanks for your response; that helps a bit.
