st: RE: geometric mean with svy (version 9.0)

The -egenmore- package -- if that is meant here -- does not purport to offer any support for -svy-. I am not clear why you thought it did.

There is a fundamental reason for this. -egenmore- is just a bunch of stuff for -egen-, and -egen- does not support weights directly. You could subvert that by specifying weights through an option, but it would be awkward at best.
