I am running the command "svy: mean" using pweights "svyset [pweight=X], psu(Y) strata(Z) singleunit(certainty)" Can anyone tell me the formula that STATA uses in calculating the standard error in this case (reported as "Linearized Std. Err.")

Two abbreviations come to mind: OMG and RTFM. The general formula is in the manual, and so is the discussion of the singleton PSU options (and how the variances are computed for those options), although you might have to spend a minute or two locating it if it is not right there in the entry for -svyset-. -- Stas Kolenikov, also found at http://stas.kolenikov.name Small print: I use this email account for mailing lists only. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
