Asssuming that values of w1 are integer, David can use

expand w1
cluster kmeans v1 v2 v3 v4 v5 v6 if vC==1, k(4) 

If they are simple fractions, he can use 

gen w2 = w1*12
expand w1
cluster kmeans v1 v2 v3 v4 v5 v6 if vC==1, k(4) 



Any significance tests & confidence intervals will be invalid; but 
if you are using cluster solely as a descriptive tool, 
you won't want those anyway.
