ok, I understand that, I already did this once, but is this
statistically correct adjusting=combine FPCs of two different surveys?
What if the FPCs are really very different (this is not mentioned case)?

Another way of putting this: When you combine independent surveys, you
must create a new stratum variable in which the individual original
strata in each survey appear. You would do this in your data, for
example by:
****************************
egen stratum =group(year stk)
*****************************
If there were 10 strata in 2006 and 10 in 2007, the new stratum
variable should have 20 levels. Then a single -svyset- statement will
allow joint analysis of the two surveys, as in my example.

I don't understand all your manipulations, Roman, but I think that the
error message provides the key: the same stratum numbers appear in
both years, but with different fpcs,, depending on the year. Renumber
the strata so that this doesn't happen.

I have 2 estemates in 2 surveys with two different FPCs (finite
population corrections). I would like to calculate ratio "nlcom
[r6]_cons/[r7]_cons" but:
"
for year 2006
svyset ico [pw=vahaHMM], strata(stk) fpc(vb1) singleunit(centered)
svy: reg X if year==2006
estimates save r2006
for year 2007
svyset ico [pw=vahaHMM], strata(stk) fpc(vb1) singleunit(centered)
svy: reg Y if year==2007
estimates save r2007
estu use r2006
estimates esample:
est sto r6
estu use r2007
estimates esample:
est sto r7
suest r6 r7
and error:
fpc for all observations within a stratum must be the same
_robust2 failed to compute cross model variance estimate
likely an internal error in suest
"
1) is any way how to easily handle this correctly in STATA? Because two
different FPCs are correct for 2 years. Within 1 year (2006 or 2007) the
FPCs are well set because "svy: reg X if year==2006" is working.
2) do I have to calculate the ratio manually? Do you know any tools or
info about this?
3) when I know the fpc does not differ much, can I use average FPC for
the both surveys for the ratio (not for averages)?
thank you
