Individual sampling weights and percentages

Cross Validated Asked by Seth C. on November 6, 2020

I am working with public use microdata measuring educational attainment. I want to calculate the percentage of the population older than 25. I am merely unaware of how to use my individual weights when calculating this, or if I even have to.

I am wondering if using weights is necessary, and if so, can I use them simply by using the egen percents command?

One Answer

You can use my epctile package. Type

findit epctile

in Stata. It supports svysettings, which you would need to specify according to the study documentation.
