Conditional logistic regression will not produce predictions that can be compared to those of ordinary "fixed effects" or random effects logistic regression. This was my answer to your original query.

However it appears that prediction is not your primary aim. So, conditional logistic regression (use -clogit-) sounds like the correct approach.

Good luck!

Unfortunately I don't have cluster specific variables. I'm worried

that you say fixed-effects logit will not solve the problem. I've read

the reference manual and it says that clogit ( which is the same as fe

logit) can be used for matched-case controles studies. In my data

every individual in a certain cluster for which the dependet variable

is zero would be a control for the rest (for which the dependent is

one). It also says that it doesn't matter if each cluster has a

different number of observations.

Finally, in the book of Wooldridge of panel data (p 496) it says that

an unobserved effect framework can be used for cluster samples. The

author cites the work of Geronimus and Korenman (1992) where they "use

sister pairs to determine the effects of teenage motherhood on

subsequente economic outcomes". They use a fixed-effects approach when

the outcome is binary.

In my model the most important omitted variables correlated with the

regressors are geographical access and cultural barriers.

Please, I would like to be confirmed if my approach is really incorrect.

2008/6/6 Steven Samuels <sjhsamuels@earthlink.net>:

If you want a 3-level or higher model with estimated variances at each

level, then your only recourse is -gllamm-. You would have to compute your

own weighted predictions.

In any case, -xtlogit- will not solve your problem; its "fixed- effects"

option makes sense only for longitudinal data.

-svylogit- will give you the standard goodness of fit statistics; will

permit you to model multiple stages of sampling, but will not provide

estimators of variance for each level. You can include cluster- specific

covariates and test the interaction of cluster-covariates and individual

covariates.

I'm still trying to find if there's a good measure of fit for a

fixed-effect logit model. As I answered in the last email, I'm really

interesed in getting one.

2008/6/6 Steven Samuels <sjhsamuels@earthlink.net>:

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:
