st: question about svy commands
New to the list and a Stata SE/8 user. I have survey data that is organized at
the individual level, roughly like this:
Var1 Var2 State Weight
I want to create a new variable, Var4, that has the mean of Var1 for whatever
state the individual is in. For example, if the first observation is in New
York, I want the new variable to have a Var4 that has the mean value of Var1
for NY. However, I need to incorporate the weights, so I was wondering if I
should use the survey commands? Is there a way to do this? Is it something
along the lines of egen var4 = svymean var1 [if var1==...
Not too sure how to do this, so please help! Thanks!
