DSWEIGHT: Stata module to generate direct standardization weights
dsweight generates direct standardization weights for input as pweights to estimation commands, standardizing the joint distribution of a list of standardization variables to a standard target population, possibly within groups defined by value combinations of a list of group variables. A direct standardization weight is defined as a ratio between the frequency of a combination of values of standardization variables in a target standard population and the frequency of the same combination of values of standardization variables in the sample or group. The standard target population may be the full sample, or a by-group defined by a combination of values of by-variables, or it may be defined using a dataset with 1 observation per combination of the group variables, and data on the frequencies of these combinations in the standard target population.
