Who knows. You might be able to get identical answers, but you'll
spend more time trying to figure out the appropriate composition of
weights trying to reproduce the answer from those -total- commands.

I'm aware of the possibility of calculating the aggregate sums of investment for different subpopoluations using the pweight and calculating the aggregate (=aweighted) growth rates from the newly-generated data. I was just wondering whether there were a more "flexible" approach, such as, say multiplicating the two weight variables and use the result in a single -tabstat- or something like that.
