That's helpful Steve thanks.

If I've read the paper correctly STATA isn't able to (currently) produce residuals with eg. the svy: logistic command, which is why I was getting an error message, and
so I have to look at other diagnostic tools. It also looks from reading that other packages don't either, such as SAS and SUDAAN, but if anyone knows otherwise do let me know.




The recent book by Heeringa et al. (2010) uses Stata (note program
spelling, Statalist FAQ 8.2) throughout.  For diagnostics, see Rick
Valliant's  Stata Conference presentation:

With logit models, you can estimate ROC curves with Roger Newson's -

.  Archer and Lemeshow have generalized the Hosmer-Lemeshow goodness
of fit test for logistic regression to survey data, and implemented it
in -svylogitgof- ("findit"). The usual techniques of adding
interactions and testing augmented against reduced models also apply.
