Stata has done a great job of adding survey analysis routines.  They're
much easier to use than SUDAAN's.  I think SUDAAN can handle more complex
designs than Stata can, but unless you need them there's no reason to
give up that second leg (down to one limb now) for SUDAAN and SAS to do
survey analysis.
