Dear Stata users,

I am trying to run a logistic regression using Measure
DHS survey data. Quoting from DHS statistics guide:
"Use of sample weights is inappropriate for estimating
relationships, such as regression and correlation
coefficients.

I am not sure whether to ignore the psu and strata
also when running the logistic regression.


Can I just use 

.xi: logistic bmi i.edu

instead of: 

svyset psu [pw=weight], strata(strata)

xi: svy: logistic bmi i.edu
