Description

Hello,
I would like to ask a few questions:

- In wave 2, what is the difference between the variable b_hcondn and b_hcondno? There is no description for b_hcondno in the documentation section of the Understanding Society website.

- I would like to use the variable ivintlang but I don't know what weight to apply, all the weights seems to have zero value for this variable.

- When I compute estimates using weights, e.g. indinus_xw, I see that I get different standard errors depending on whether I use the command:
svy, subpop (if varname=...): mean varname
or the command:
svy: mean varname, over(varname)
Why does this happen? What command is reliable?

Thanks and regards
Giulia
