I wish to use the weights provided in the Current Population Survey's
supplements to analyze binary responses by individuals (and sometimes
by households); I wish to use -gllamm- because the units are clustered
in states and I wish to test the impact of policies that vary by
states. However if I use the -weight(VAR)- command following the
-gllamm- commands, it says the weight variables cannot be found.

I guess I am naively using the -weight- command and the weight
variables just as I would if the command was -iweight- when analyzing
the data in -logit- without the clustering. Is this the wrong way to
think of this? Any solutions? (The CPS weights are ten digits long
including four decimal places).

Thanks for any leads.
