Better yet, run -logit- with the "or" option.

The odd thing is, -logistic- calls -logit- to do the actual estimation, and the documentation for -logit- suggests that it does not accept aweights, although it does, in fact.

So it seems like either they both should, or neither should accept aweights.

Dear all,

I tried to run a logistic regression using a_weight and got an error message back (aweigth not allowed). Is there any explanation for that? Can I alternatively run a logit using a_weight and then manually calculate the odds ratio from the logit regression coefficients? Would that give me the odds ratio I was looking for when I ran the logistic?

Thanks in advance,
