svydescribe displays a table that describes the strata and the sampling units for a given sampling stage in a survey dataset.


+------+ ----+ Main +-------------------------------------------------------------

stage(#) specifies the sampling stage to describe. The default is stage(1).

finalstage specifies that results be displayed for each sampling unit in the final sampling stage; that is, a separate line of output is produced for every sampling unit in the final sampling stage. This option is not allowed with stage(), single, or generate().

single specifies that only the strata containing one sampling unit be displayed in the table.

generate(newvar) stores a variable that identifies strata containing one sampling unit for a given sampling stage.
