Hi Michael: Thanks! Yes, this is clearly the way Stata treats it. Are you also saying, however, that this is theoretically the way it has to be? Supposing I have no strata (err, one big strata) and 5 post-strata, wouldn't it be conceivable to correct for the number of known population units in each post-strata? If I keep working w/ this kind of data, I guess it'll be time for me to pick up a book that carefully derives each of the formulas behind svy. Peter On Thu, Sep 24, 2009 at 7:55 AM, Michael I.
