If I remember correctly you can use -gologit2- to get a test for
parallel lines and -gologit2- allows svy. You can install -gologit2-
by typing in Stata -ssc install gologit2- and you can read more about
it here: <>

Hope this helps,

Correct. You can test individual variables using the -autofit- option. For a global test, similar to Brant, do something like

webuse nhanes2f, clear
gologit2 health female black age height weight, svy
test [#1 = #2 = #3 = #4]

If you weren't using svy, you could do a LR chi-square test, e.g.

gologit2 health female black age height weight, pl sto(ologit)
gologit2 health female black age height weight, npl sto(gologit)
lrtest ologit gologit, stats

Maarten and I did some simulations a few years ago where we compared brant, omodel, and gologit2. All performed about the same, at least in our simulations. brant appeared to be the best. omodel tended to not reject the null often enough, brant was about right, gologit2 rejected a little too often. gologit2 is the only approach I know of when data are svyset. gologit2 also supports several different link functions.

If you have a data set that uses some of the svyset options introduced after Version 9 of stata, I have a beta version of gologit2 that can handle them. Write me off-list for details.
