Dear stata listers:
My theory, incidentally, is that there is a bug in the built-in _predict
command. The reason this is my theory is because I can't see what it is
doing when I -set trace on-, and I don't see any other obvious
culprits. If it isn't that, then I bet there is a problem with logit_p.ado.
In version 9, When I use predict after " svy: logit" the predicted
probabilities range from roughly 0.8 to greater than 2.0. I don't
understand this. When predicting in Version 8.0 (under version control) I
get predictions that are credible. The survey logistic regression give the
same coefficients for both version 8.0 and version 9.0 , the problem is
only the prediction.
Incidentally one other workaround (I think) is to use mlogit or ologit
svy: mlogit y x
predict temp3 temp4
temp4 is the variable you want. This seems to work ok.
