Counties are not random.  Just the populations within jails within the counties.  The ADAM data is set up like 37 different random samples.

In all likelihood, you can, although you will end up with about 20
lines of code to prepare all the data and variables. Were the counties
sampled randomly, or is that a complete list of counties?

Where there were only one jail in the city a single jail design was used that randomly selected people arrested.  For counties with a few booking agencies a stratified jail design was used.  For counties with several jails a stratified cluster sample design was used, and for counties that had several jails that feed into one jail a feeder jail design was used where arrestees were sampled only from the central jail but represented arrestees from each of the feeder jails.  All designs are a random sample.  Is there a way in stata that I can use the survey data settings for my study?
