Also, -cmdok- was not an option in Stata 11. If it is not in Stata 11.1, Lauren can -mi estimate- means and standard errors,then multiply these by an estimate of population size N. If a good external estimate of N is available, I'd recommend that. Also for many surveys an independent estimate is available: the the sum of the sample weights, corrected for non-response. This won't work if: 1) the weights were standardized to sum to sample size; or 2) the sample was drawn poorly, e.g. a SRS of unequally sized units was drawn at the first stage.

There's nothing special to -total- that would make it terribly different from other commands, so you should just proceed with -cmdok- option of -mi estimate-. Support for -total- was added in version 12. It does seem odd it wasn't supported before. Perhaps it could be double-checked against the -means- command to make sure it will work ok in Stata 11.
