There are multiple ways to do this. Different people will tell you different methods. I'd suggest using the SVY commands. The general syntax for CPS data is as follows: svyset serial [pweight==wtsupp]. The SERIAL variable is a household serial number and tells STATA about the sampling unit used in the survey.

For others who may be using the user forum to find information on specifying the SVYSET command for weighting in stata for the CPS, I found this page particularly helpful:

It even has the correct code to use in Stata.
