Frequency and sampling problem

Hi,

I am new to SAS and was trying to figure out how to fix my sample weight in my data. I am using the proc freq procedure to look at two variables. I attached the output below. However I want to say what region has the best health status but cannot do this because of distribution of my sample (that being the majority coming from the south). I cannot use the weight command on categorical variables so I am at a loss of what to do. I hope this makes sense and if anyone could help that would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you!

You can use the WEIGHT statement for categorical variables. However, if these are survey weights you might want to use the SURVEYFREQ procedure instead, which corrects the variance estimates to account for the sampling design.
