st: calculating effect sizes when using svy command |

I have two questions related to calculating effect sizes using svyreg (pweights): First, when doing unweighted regressions in SPSS, I like to provide effect sizes for each predictor by calculating a correlation coefficient value (r) from the t values provided in the output. I like using r because it is easy for most people to interpret. Can I do the same using svyreg output? My second question is related to the first. Since there is no correlation option under the svy commands, I have been computing regressions of Y on X and X and Y and using the largest p value of the two sets of results, as recommended elsewhere. I've having trouble figuring out how to convert the results provided in the output to a correlation coefficient though. I noticed that the r value I get by taking the square root of the R squared is different from my own hand calculation of r derived from the t value provided in the regression output [sqrt of (t squared divided by t squared + df). I'm not sure which r is correct (or if either of them are correct). Thanks in advance for any guidance others may be able to offer. * * 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/
