Tabulate With Weight

Hello,

I am using the tabulate function for my table, and I would like to use a weighted variable to calculate N. Any idea how to do this? Thank you

If I'm understanding your question correctly, you simply need to preselect the Weight role for the specific variable; you can do this by right-clicking on the variable in the list on the left side of the data table.

You assign the weight column in the data table with the Preselect role command in the Cols Menu.
If wt is your weight column, you can do it with the following JSL statement
:wt << preselect role(weight);

Tabulate will use that column as weight whenever it computes any statistics.
