Hi Jeff and other Listers - How about the question 2 of Robert? Below is the question: >2 - Is it possible to estimate a one-way anova to detect group differences > with svy commands in Stata 8 based on my above example? In Robert's example, variable x has three categories: 0, 1, and 2. Is there any way to compare the three group differences concurrently (like a one-way anova) with svy commands?
