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

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

Can I just use

xi: logistic bmi

instead of:

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

xi: svy: logistic bmi
