I am using svymlogit to perform a multinomial logistic regression with survey data. A couple of questions:

-Is there a way to assign a unit to a continuous predictor? For example, in SAS, I could assign units of 10,000 to my income variable, so that the coefficient and odds ratio will correspond to increases of $10,000 rather than increases of $1, which is not very meaningful.
The simplest way is to rescale income, e.g. do something like

gen inc2 = inc/10000
