thanks Maarten, by using sum I get the following:


. sum hy020 [w=db090]
(analytic weights assumed)

    Variable |     Obs      Weight        Mean   Std. Dev.       Min        Max
-------------+-----------------------------------------------------------------
       hy020 |    2481  4012818.04    32078.65   35411.68      -4000     909798

hy020 is the household disposable income. Here I have the weight (= no
of household represented) and the mean income. How to get a total sum,
not only for the householdin the sample, but representative for all
household (=weight)?

thanks
