Not all that simple a question, actually.
No, I don't know of a way you can selectively weight the mean of just one
variable in a single VAR statement. However, beginning in version 7 you can
put more than one VAR statement in PROC MEANS, and you can specify WEIGHT=
as a VAR statement option. So, although I haven't tried it, I suspect that
the following would do what you want:
PROC MEANS etc.
VAR Var1 / WEIGHT=WeightVar;
VAR Other1 Other2 Other3;

Can I compute a weighted mean for just one variable
in a VAR list, while reporting unweighted means
for the other variables?
