I have to generate a variable for the sum of household disposable
income and I must use the available weights to get the real sum.
Anyway the commands gen and egen (for a sake of clarity I used egen
newvar=sum(income)) do not allow the use of weights. Therefore what I
get is a sum of all sampled household income and not the real overall,
since to get the average income I have to divide by the number of
household in my sample and not - as desired - by the number of
"represented" household (ibtained by my weights).
Thanks a lot
