Hi everyone,

I am a PhD student that just found this listserv online. I am using STATA to analyze data from the Add Health dataset for my dissertation. For it, I must enter sampling weights & the primary sampling units to correct for design based effects. Although I know how to center variables, I am uncertain what is the best way to specify my subpopluation when I center. Should I use the subpop option? I am also uncertain regarding whether the sampling weights need to be taken into account and how when centering my variables. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.
