Thanks -- Yes, I understand that I can use 'svy' with 'oaxaca' -- but I need
to specify subsamples of the entire NHANES.  For example, I want to analyze
only women who are black or white.  For 'regress', I would specify the
'subpop' option with the 'svy' prefix.  But for the 'oaxaca' command, I get
an error message when trying to specify a subpopulation with the 'svy'
option (saying that it doesn't support the subpop option).

It says how to do it in the oaxaca help file.  Instead of an svy 
prefix, you use an svy option.
