i have been asked by a colleague if it is possible to do 'best subsets' modelling in 
logistic regression

my question is therefore - can this be achieved in stata and how is it achieved


There is a textbook example of Stata performing best subsets logistic regression at

I'm not sure how best subsets modeling differs in principle from stepwise regression, but 
there are some programs that might be helpful to take a look at and that might help 
automate the process, for example, Stata's official -sw-.  Also, take a look at Nick Cox's 
-allpossible- / -glmcorr-.  Although Al Feiveson's -tryem- is written for linear regression, 
examining the ado-file for it might give some ideas for writing analogous code for 
logistic regression.
