I would add, at the risk of stating the obvious, that there is a -svymean- command in standard Stata. It has nothing to do with -egen-.
Also, if you want a weighted mean in an -egen- context, try the _gwtmean package from SSC: ssc desc _gwtmean ssc install _gwtmean
But, I can say whether any of this is useful for the problem at hand.
