I should explain that you can use -tabout- with non-survey data.
However the command uses  a -svy- command internally to generate and
display standard errors and confidence intervals.  Accordingly you
must still -svyset- your data, but leave it with its non-survey
characteristics (no weights, PSUs = observations)..  The command
"svyset _n"  does that for the data, and the option "svy" in -tabout-
makes it happen.
