If you don't need the standard errors, you could try [fweight]
specification of -tabstat- and feed your sampling weights. Most of the
times, the computation of the point estimates is the same with
-fweights- and -pweights-, but standard errors are totally different,
and you really need to know what you are doing with each type of
weights.
