Re: st: Very low sensitivity of fixed-effects logit |

Thank you very much. I've used the following commands: Fixed-effects models: # delimit; xi: xtlogit Y X1 X2 X3 i.X4 if [rural==1] [iw=pwi], fe i(V001) nolog or ; delimit cr Random-effects models. # delimit; xi: xtlogit Y X1 X2 X3 i.X4 region3 region5 if [rural==1] [iw=pwi], re i(V001) nolog or ; delimit cr I didn't use svy: because it didn't allow me to use xtlogit (I'm interested in excluding the effect of certain unobserved cluster variables, as geographical access, in X4 and get a consistent estimator of its impact on Y). I know that when using survey data it's not correct to use the "if", but svy, subpop( www). Nevertheless, I couldn't think of another way. To calcute the predictions I used: predict Yhat if e(sample), pu0 I didn't use lsens because it can't be used after xtlogit. I hope this information helps to clarify my problem. 2008/6/5, Steven Samuels <sjhsamuels@earthlink.net>: > Leda, > > You need to tell us exactly which logistic commands you ran. -svy: logit- > would be appropriate for fixed-effects logistic regression with stratified, > weighted, and clustered, data. -logistic- itself will not take stratum > variables, but will take weights and clustering. > > -xtmelogit- cannot handle survey weights, but would otherwise be the proper > program for random effects logistic regression.
