# st: R: t-test using analytic weights

```Dear Sripal,

As far as my previous example is concerned, the following line is redundant:

oneway age Group [aweight = height], bonferroni.

BTW, Bonferroni correction (just like other corrections for multiple
comparisons available for -ANOVA-) is actually useful for comparing the
means of three or more Groups.

Hence, for two Groups only (as your reported) the revised example goes like
this(flag: Stata 9.2/SE):

-------------------------------------------------
set obs 100
g Group=1 in 1/50
replace  Group=2 in 51/100
g age = 50 *uniform()
g height=165*uniform()
oneway age Group [aweight = height]
-------------------------------------------------

Should you be interested in comparing the means of three or more Groups, you
can replace the line
oneway age Group [aweight = height]

with the line
oneway age Group [aweight = height], bonferroni

Kind Regards,
Carlo

Sripal might want to take a look at:
-help ANOVA-;
the following example (flag: Stata 9.2/SE):
-------------------------------------------------
set obs 100
g Group=1 in 1/50
replace  Group=2 in 51/100
g age = 50 *uniform()
g height=165*uniform()
oneway age Group [aweight = height]
oneway age Group [aweight = height], bonferroni
-----------------------------------------------

HTH and Kind Regards,
Carlo

Hi,

I am trying to use t-test of independent samples but by using analytic
weights.  I tried the following:

ttest age1 == age2 [aweight = wt], unpaired

I get an error message saying "weights not allowed".  Is there a way around
it?

thanks,

Sripal.
