Ivica-
You can use the individual weights, Ivica, but divide by 4 so that they sum to the average population total over the four years

You still have to write the rest of the -svyset- command.  If the PSUs did not change over the four years, then treat the pooled sample as one large sample, and use the same -svyset- statement that you would use for a single year.  If some PSUs changed you will have to do some stratum recoding. For an example see http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/ppt/nchs2010/46_Moriarity.ppt

Dear all,

I am trying to pool four repeated cross-sections of Croatian Hpusehold
Budget Survey. 
For each year that I want to pool, I have sampling weights for each
observation (both household and person).
My questions are: What should I do with the weights once I pool the four
datasets? Is it wrong to use 
dataset-specific weights in the pooled dataset and just run estimation
commands with the weight option, if
available? I am confused. Please, help.

Thanks,
Ivica Rubil
