Yes, this mostly looks good. A couple of notes:
1) For 2000, FEMALE POPULATION=14619 and FEMALE SAMPLE=15367. I assume this is just a typo in the message.
2) For the svyset it should use [pw=weight]. wgt is for use with a single survey, weight would be used for the pooled dataset.
3) For tabulating the combined pooled file, you should use tab x1 x2 [iweight=weight], not wgt
4) The svy: reg will use whatever you have defined in the svyset, so that should be weight for the pooled dataset, or wgt if you are using only a single survey.
5) I don't know ivreg2, so I can't advise on this, but typically not taking the complex sampling into account (with svy) means that significance tests and confidence intervals are not accurate.
