Does anyone know if using Tamas Bartus' margeff after svy: probit is
OK? I tried using the model(svy: probit) option, which seems to work,
but I don't see this documented anywhere. The results it yields are
different than with the model(probit) option.
I just tried the following - given that margeff and mfx produce the same results, I am guessing you are ok (but I can't guarantee it).

use "http://www.stata-press.com/data/r9/nhanes2f.dta";
svy: probit heartatk height weight female black
margeff, at(mean)
mfx
margeff, at(mean) model(probit)

Incidentally, for me it didn't matter whether I specified model(probit) or not.
