Hello,

1-I'd like to collapse the data to create a panel of observations across several years. So in this case, I should collapse across which variable to ensure that my units are constant over the years? Do I need to use the GPS data-set?

2-How do I use the weights in stata on the individual and household level data? Is it only run along with the regression command? If I create summary statistics or graphical figures do I need to specify the weight option? Is there a way to weight the whole data-set like in SPSS?

3-If I am collapsing my data-set, do I use the weight along with the collapse option? If so, would I still need to put it again as an option in the regression command or summary statistics tabulation?

Thanks.
