Hi -- I'm looking for a way to statistically test for interactions (effect modification) in a svyregress model. If I was just using regress, I'd just use lrtest to compare nested models with and without the interaction terms -- but since lrtest can't be used with svy commands, I'm not sure how to go about this. Is there a way in stata to get this information from a Wald test?

If it makes a difference, the interaction of interest is between a categorical variable with 3 values (race) and an ordered variable with 4. Race also happens to be the one that the survey weights are based on.

Comparing the results of regressions stratified by race, it seems pretty clear that interaction is occuring, but we'd like to have a statistical test we can cite as saying so.

Thanks in advance for any help people have!
