I'm not very familiar with the use of -svy:- in general and especially with
its use for taking multiple measurements into account. What settings did
you use with -svyset- for your dataset, and what are the advantages of this
approach over, say, -oligit, cluster()-? I'm not asking for a tutorial, but
if there's some reference you can point me to for this use . . .
Setting the data with -svy- identifying the participant as the PSU is equivalent to the -cluster- option. I tend to use -svy- because I often have to specify survey designs, with strata and sampling weights, so it's second nature to me. But Joseph is right to wonder if -cluster- wouldn't be easier in this case.
