Hi Steve: That's very helpful, thanks! Now the error msg makes sense. There was no stratified random sampling of schools (psu's) in this project, so I didn't specify strata. I had hoped to be able to use post-stratification as a way to reweight the data so it would look more like the population described in my auxiliary data (an alternative to calculating pweights by hand). My 'fpc' information came from what I know about the post-strata N's. I can omit the fpc option, and the analysis will run. Will have to see if this really gives me the same result as the pweights would. Peter On Wed, Sep 23, 2009 at 8:51 PM, <sjsamuels@gmail.com> wrote: > 1.
