Well, if it is constant across the entire estimation sample, it cannot
possibly contribute to the explanation of the variance in the dependent var.
But that is not specific to logistic regression.

If the var is inherently unable to contribute anything useful, this issue
does not "affect the analysis" in that you do not lose anything useful.

Dear all
 
I am a reserch fellow and I  use stata to my analysis. I would like to know
what we should do when in a multiple logistic analysis we have a output
saying  that the variable was dropped by estimability or dropped because it
is constant. How can we fix it and how much it affects the analysis?
 
Thanks
