Ben, In terms of "correct", I was thinking of first running my regression and then using something along the lines of a -svy- command using the subpop option and e(sample) to calculate the sd of my independent variables. One could then compare this result with what -estadd- and -listcoef- computes. However, I believe there was a post long ago that asked if -svy- could indeed calculate sd's for variables and the answer was "not directly". I have yet to find the actual post though. I could use -svy- mean and e(sample) to check the means and then cross reference this with the -estadd- summ option computes. This would give me some idea of how the survey design is being taken into account. I did some quick checking last night and -estout- and -listcoef- do indeed compute different sd's for my variables. This is not to say they are radically different but some are enough to make me wonder which to use.

Well, I'm not sure. It takes into account the weights and the -subpop()- option, but -estadd ebsd- just uses plain -summarize- and no adjustment is made for degrees of freedom or so, which I assume would have to if there are strata and/or clusters. What would be the "correct" formula for the SD in this case? Is there a Stata command that computes it? ben On 9/25/07, Carter Rees <carterrees@gmail.com> wrote: > Ben, > > The command I am using is svy subpop(): nbreg, so yes the subpop option is > specified for my model.
