st: RE: loglinear models and survey data
I think that -contract- leading to -glm- is indeed the
best route. One of the details of -contract-, the -zero-
option, was included with this very task in mind.
I am not clear on the difficulty with pweights. Can't
you just include the weight variable in the list supplied
to -contract-? I don't think you need a separate handle
to treat them differently.
-svy- I leave to its own experts.
