Hi, Rodrigo,

Thank you so much for help. It works.

BTW, Do you know how to force some variables stay in the model when
running backward selection?

It seems to me that you are using -svylogit-... right?? Check in the manual
the formula related with the weight that you are using. I am guessing that
the weights are independent of the number of variables. Therefore, you can
run -sw logit- using weights. Example: (1) Suppose that you are
using -svyset [pw=wt], then create a new variable that describe the weights
(weight is a fair name), (2) Check that -svylogit y x1 x2- gives you the
same as -logit y x1 x2 [pw=weight]-, (3) Run your model as -sw logit

I hope this helps

I am doing backward logistic regression with survey data.
Unfortunately,  SW is not supported by svy. Which means I have to do
this manually. According to, backward LR is not
appropriate if I understand correctly.  So I have to use backward
Wald. Anybody can help me how to get Wald test? Or any command to do

Thanks so much,
