Subject   st: svy adjustment for rates

I am using Stata 10.1, and am analyzing data from a population-based
household survey of mortality in the past 12 months.

I have data on the length of survival in the past 12 months for every
household member, and would like to calculate mortality rates by
different characteristics (eg sex, age etc).

While I can calculate non-survey-adjusted mortality rates using
-strate-, this does not work with the -svy- prefix.  And while I can run
something like -svy: ratio deaths/survival_time- these do not give me
the correct (Poisson?) CIs.

What I'm looking for is a command like -svy, (over somestratum): rate
deaths/survival_time-  that will give the correct estimate and CIs.  Is
something like this possible?  Many thanks.
