Age-adjusted proportions in CSTabulate (SPSS Complex samples)

For the time being, CSTabulate procedure in IBM SPSS Complex samples module provides crude proportions and many statistics associated with them.

It would be very useful if CSTabulates could also compute age-adjusted proportions, their standard errors and their confidence intervals.

It would be also very useful if CSTabulate provided pairwise comparisons of proportions tests between the categories of a variable and if significant differences were identified in the same table using an APA-style notation with subscript letters.

    I am not able to help with the APA notation stuff. This is kind of my ken.

    For the age-adjusted proportions, I need more information. Does this mean
    to output statistics (proportions, std errors, CIs) for each age category?
    Or, we need to treat age as a covariate, and build an appropriate
    regression model (like binary logistic regression) to draw statistical
    inference on the proportion parameter?
