I don't know the details, but svyreg does more complex calculations to account for certain features of survey data. So I would expect the results to differ. (Though, I'm not so sure if that holds when you don't specify strata or psu.)

In analyzing weighted survey data, I'm surprised that the following commands
        svyset [pweight=weight]
        svyreg y x
don't give the same results as
        reg y x [pw=weight]
        reg y x [pw=weight], hc3
or even
        reg y x [aw=weight]

I'm left confused as to what svyreg is doing. Any insights most appreciated.
