I've worked with the SIPP, but it's been many years. I don't remember too many details, though I believe there are some considerable complexities. But in any case, I'm sure there are weights involved.
Possibly, you would be best to use svy commands to handle them.

I have few questions concerning the data. When you work with the SIPP, do
I have to take into account the weighting procedure when I want
to calculate indicators.

Ex: I want to calculate the nr of people and the percentage of working age
who are employed and are included in a retirement plan offered on their
and not through the social security.

If anyone who can provide me with their knowledge to understand the SIPP
data set, I would be more than happy.
