Marcus L Britton <> tries to use -mi estimate-'s -esampvaryok-
option to allow estimation on varying estimation samples when running 
-mi estimate: svy: logit- and receives the following error:

The most likely reason for this error message is that Marcus is specifying the
-esampvaryok- option with -svy: logit- instead of with -mi estimate-.
The correct syntax for this is:

  . mi estimate, esampvaryok: svy: logit ...

If this does not solve the problem for Marcus, he should contact Stata
technical services at for additional help with this.
