Better yet, run -logit- with the "or" option.
Surprising but true. logistic.ado has syntax checks that prevent aweights
but logit.ado does not. So which routine is mistaken - logit for allowing
aweights or logistic for not? The documentation for aweights says
"Typically, the observations represent averages and the weights are the
number of elements that gave rise to the average." That wouldn't seem to
apply to a logistic regression problem, would it? i.e. the DV is not the
average number of successes. In any event, there must be a mistake somewhere!
The odd thing is, -logistic- calls -logit- to do the actual estimation,
and the documentation for -logit- suggests that it does not accept
aweights, although it does, in fact.
So it seems like either they both should, or neither should accept aweights.
