If  by "hierarchical" you mean  "multi-level", then the answer is
"no".  If you mean that you have  multi-stage survey data, with
responses from individuals, but  some predictors measured on
higher-level units (family, locality) then the answer is "probably".
-svyreg- will estimate coefficients and compute standard errors based
on variation between primary sampling units, but it will not compute
components of variance attributable to different levels.  You can,
however do some of that yourself..  If you mean something else, we
can't answer your question until you are more specific about your
proposed analysis.
