st: How can I do a weighted logit? |

Dear STATA List, I am trying to run a weighted logit regression in STATA. It is easy to notice that weights are not allowed by the basic logit command (STATA gives the error 'aweight not allowed'). I have been told about the possibility of referring to a past version of STATA which supports aweights: version 9.0 logit y x [aw=w] I am somewhat suspect though that the estimates produced by the above program are accurate. For example, if the weights are chosen as to correct for bias from a choice-based sample, so that there is a different weight for y=1 and for y=0, the estimates of the weighted and unweighted unweighted logit should be the same except for the intercept term. STATA does not seem to be producing this result. Should the above weighted logit be correct? If not, how can I do one correctly? Thank you very much. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
