Subject   st: comparing multiple means with survey data

Hello -
I have been struggling to find a way to compare the means of a different categories of one of my variable. I think I have found a way but I wonder if there would be a more efficient way to do it. In the following example, var 2 has five categories (var2a-var2e). Here's teh commands I type (after survey setting the data):

svy linearized : mean var1, over(var2)
test [var1]var2a = [var1]var2b = [var1]var2c = [var1]var2d = [var1]var2e, mtest(b)
test [var1]var2b = [var1]var2c = [var1]var2d = [var1]var2e, mtest(b)
test [var1]var2c = [var1]var2d = [var1]var2e, mtest(b)
test [var1]var2d = [var1]var2e, mtest(b)

Is there a better way to do this?

Thanks!
