Who knows. You might be able to get identical answers, but you'll

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.
