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.

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 Roman Kasal * * 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/ * * 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/
