Leah K. Nelson <lknelson@ucsd.edu>: You can just run -logit- with dummies for each village and cluster(village)--see e.g. http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2007-10/msg01008.html In general, using fixed effects does not automatically imply clustered SEs, but using -xtreg, fe- with -robust- now does (as of update 25feb2008; see http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?whatsnew for details).
