You are assuming there is an underlying population SD, right? Which means there is an underlying population mean (proportion) m and the SD is sqrt(m*(1-m)), right? or after the -vwls- command, di sqrt(_b[_cons]*(1-_b[_cons])) see also http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/stat/supweight.html (noting that you have aweights).
