Dear Stata Listmembers:
* Is the data svyset using mecwt4?
I have come across a problem that I can't figure out. I don't know
why I am "losing" 873 observations with one stata command versus the other -
for mean age by race, if age>=18. Both age and race are 100% present
in the total dataset - total (N=21004) and for age>=18 (N=11,441).
This is complex survey data and of course, I would use the survey
commands for analysis, but it still doesn't make sense why the
non-survey command would use less observations (even so, the point
estimates are identical.
Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated.
* Make sure you have the latest update of Stata. There have been
some patches in the last two weeks, some of which affect svy-related commands.
