{title:Examples for Version 11 or later}
{phang}. use http://www.stata-press.com/data/r11/nhanes2f{p_end}
{phang}. svyset psuid [pweight=finalwgt], strata(stratid){p_end}
{phang}. mean2 height age weight smsa using myfile.txt, over(sex) cat(Male Female) svy excel replace{p_end}
{phang}Basically the above codes produces the same stuff as this:{p_end}
{phang}. svy: mean height age weight smsa, over(sex){p_end}
{phang}Plus the statistical differences computed by something like this:{p_end}
{phang}. lincom [height]Male - [height]Female{p_end}
{phang}You get the idea.{p_end}
{title:Examples for Version 9 or later}
