Setup . webuse multistage

Declare the data to be complex survey data . svyset county [pw=sampwgt], strata(state) fpc(ncounties) || school, fpc(nschools)

Estimate the average weight of high school seniors in our population . svy: mean weight, over(sex)

Test the hypothesis that the average male is 30 pounds heavier than the average female . test [weight]male - [weight]female = 30
