How do I use weights when conducting Pearson correlations? I have tried
placing the weight syntax in three places:

pwcorr x1 x2 x3 [pw=weight], if....
See -help pwcorr- . The above comes closest but the -if- clause needs to come before the comma, i.e.

pwcorr x1 x2 x3 [pw=weight] if.... ,

HOWEVER, according to the help, only aweights and fweights are allowed, not pweights; so you may have to go to a plan B here. Maybe there is another routine that does what you want, or maybe it can be done with the svy commands; I don't know. Or, maybe you can just get by with using aweights, especially if you are not worried about significance tests.
