Spearman correlation is just Pearson correlation applied to ranks, so
ranking first (use -egen-) gets you from one to the other. Otherwise
P-values for correlations are over-rated in my view, whether in -svy-
contexts or otherwise.

Others should have comments on the -svy- aspects.

As I understand, I can calculate Pearson correlations using corr with aweight for the coefficients and then calculate the p-values using svy: regress y x and svy: regress x y then selecting the larger p-value. Is there a way of calculating Spearman correlations using a survey weight and bootstrap weights?
