Re: st: svy, subpop ( ) with version 10

The numbers of PSU and strata (before subsetting) are different. Therefore either the -svyset- commands or the data sets differ. By the way, how did you resolve your cluster problem?

Hi,

I'm running a logit using svy and found a difference in the
coefficients and pvalues reported by version 9 and 10 of Stata. I
thought that it could be because of the observations that each one
takes into account. As you can see below the version 10 considers 4178
observations but there are actually 8471 and the results are the same
as using the "if" after svy. Can anybody explain this?

The command I used for both versions was:

svy, subpop(urbano): logit PS n_hijos educ seguro V157 NSE rural
_ISREGION_3 _ISREGION_5 CPci CPci2 labor_prol

VERSION 10:

Survey: Logistic regression

Number of strata = 24 Number of obs = 4178
Number of PSUs = 451 Population size = 2920.9792

Subpop. no. of obs = 4178
Subpop. size
= 2920.9792
Design df
= 427
F( 10,
418) = 30.43
Prob > F
= 0.0000
