Hi Tomas,

Intuitively I would use the 'If' option by specifying each time a
different age group and treating men and women like subpopulations.
See page 54 of the Stata Survey Data Reference Manual, Release 11.
Maybe there is a quicker way...

Regards,

Veronica

However, it seems impossibly to use calibest to calculate mean values and proportions for men and women _subdivided_ on agegroups (for example). Like you usually do using -over()- or -by- options.
