He is using pweights with both approaches though, right? And the
coefficients will come out the same, I believe. Actually, I have
wondered much the same thing. When using pw with regular commands, is
Stata giving you some statistics it shouldn't? Or conversely, when
using svy, is it sometimes holding back on reporting statistics that
are legitimate? I am not sure why pseudo r2 would be legitimate with
one of the approaches but not the other.
