Hi,This is discussed on p. 357 of the Stata 8 Users guide (see point #2). I can't say that I fully understand the explanation, but the key phrase seems to be "Using z rather than t statistics only yields a nontrivial difference when there is a small number of clusters (<50)."

I was surprised to find that svylogit produces t-statistics rather than z-statistics. Logit produces t-statistics as one would expect. Anybody knows the answer?
