Dear statalist,

Any thoughts on a handy function or command to summarize the weighted
proportion? For instance, I have a variable that indicates to which
Race a respondent belongs. For example

RRACE = 1 if Hispanic
RRACE = 2 if White
RRACE = 3 if Black
RRACE = 4 if Other

Additionally I have a variable that weights the respondents (due to
oversampling of Hispanic's in my database), call this variable

Now I want to summarize the weighted proportions of RRACE, i.e. how
much % is Hispanic, White, etc.

Obviously I can plot a histogram by the command [see below] which will
give me an overview of the proportions.

histogram rrace [weight = RWEIGHT], discrete width(1) percent

My question is: how can I get these proportions into the result window?

Thank you!
