I am doing a cross sectional analysis in a huge data set.

The initial descriptive analysis is stratified by gender, 4 calendar periods and smoking status which gives me the proportions within the groups of my categorical covariates (BMI, Income, Education). This descriptive analysis gives me crude proportions and I need these proportions to be age adjusted...

I do have the cat_age variable of my set and i plan to use the female population distribution to standardize the female age variable and the males with the males ...
