Thank you for your reply... I am still struggling to solidlyunderstand this. Perhaps I have a more fundamental question. What isthe formula for the "Number of obs" in the context of the -svy-commands. It sounds like, in the absence of the -subpop()- option,it is the number of observations with non-missing values on thetabulated variable. And, in the presence of the -subpop()- option itis the total number of observations minus the number of observationsthat meet the -subpop()- option and are missing on the tabulatedvariable. Am I on the right track here?

svy, subpop(if sex==1 & !mi(race)):
