Generally when Stata doesn't report something, it means that in the
best guess of their statisticians, it's not a meaningful number. There
are legitimate disagreements about that but when you're dealing with
weighting as happens in survey data, I bet that's the situation. You
could always calculate it by hand using McFadden's formula if you have
to. In binary regression pseudo-R^2 is rarely meaningful anyway.
