<> Easy: for a continuous variable the probability that X_i = x is zero. Kit Baum, Boston College Economics and DIW Berlin http://ideas.repec.org/e/pba1.html An Introduction to Modern Econometrics Using Stata: http://www.stata-press.com/books/imeus.html On Feb 11, 2009, at 02:33 , Howie wrote:

Is there a command that will give me the proportion of the time avariable is equal to a certain value? The command must acceptweights. I'm looking for something like -tabcond-, from SSC, butthat returns proportions as well as counts.One option would be to -generate- a dummy equal to 1 when myvariable is equal to my value and zero otherwise and then to use -svy: mean-, but I would prefer something that can be done in oneline (and without generating a new variable). My variable iscontinuous, so I don't want to -svy: tab- the whole thing.
