I have a question I am stuck with. I need to drop observations that are beyond 3 standard errors from the mean of one of the variables. The problem is that using -drop if- will eliminate observations without taking into account the weights and will eliminate more observations than needed. I cannot expand the dataset to 8 million records because of memory issues. My question is if there is a way to do this procedure in a more manageable way.
