I'm trying to construct a crosstab on weighted, ordinal data.  Stata will d= o the crosstab.  When I try to get the gamma or kendall's tau (or any measu= res of association), it says "option gamma not allowed" (or substitute "gam= ma" for any measure I tried).  Why is this?  I tried the survey function, b= ut gamma and tau aren't options in the measures.  Can anyone provide some l= ight here?  I just need to be able to say whether or not the variables are = associated, and the strength and direction of the relationship...??
