Thanks Michael. As I understand it, I shouldn't use fpc corrects for regressions and such anyway, and that's most of my analyses. Just curious about what poststrata actually do.

Lichter" <mlichter@buffalo.edu> Subject: Re: st: svyset problem 2: using svy with partially complete surveys Peter, Your question is whether we can or should, in theory, correct variance estimates for the size of the sample relative to the population within each poststratum, just as is done for "real" strata. It's not a question that ever occurred to me before, but it does make sense. I don't see why this could not be done, although it may be mooted by the poststratification adjustments to variance calculation that Stata does. Perhaps somebody more knowledgeable than me can answer you properly. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
