For some STATA ado files, how to change the code to add the function
of studying survey data? I am trying to use -probitiv- command, but
it cannot deal with survey data. There is also no corresponding
command to accomplish this job, such as -svyprobitiv-. If I just
change all the commands in the ado file into -svy- command series,
does the code accomplish the job? Or, is there any other thing I
also need to change in the -probitiv- ado file? I am using STATA version 8.
That is a pretty old program, and does various things that would be
considered bad practice today, e.g. it has no help file and lacks a
version command. And, the documentation it does have even says the
standard errors are wrong! Perhaps someone knows of a better command for you.
If you must live with this program, skimming through the code you see
various probit and regress commands. My temptation would be to do as
you suggest and change those to svyprobit and svyregress and hope it
