Rebecca might also want to install the -parmest- package from -ssc-, which
would give her a new file with both parameters and standard errors saved,
plus the CIs.

Betreff: st: Saving svy mean estimates?


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].
