st: Adjusting for individual clustering in pooled -svyset- data

Dear Statalist,

Id really appreciate advice please regarding the best approach to adjusting for individual clustering in a pooled cross-sectional -svyset- dataset.

Ive pooled data from 10 waves of the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) (waves 6-15). The pooled survey waves that have been combined therefore are not independent and each individual BHPS respondent appears 1-10 times in the pooled data.

BHPS has a complex survey design, so I’ve -svyset- the data and am using the relevant individual level cross-sectional weights for each wave.

Im completing -svyset- logistic regression analysis (-logistic-).

The analysis is being carried out in Stata 12.1 (64 bit).

Im using the Stata commands below to -svyset- the data:
. svyset [pweight = weightvar], psu(psuvar) strata(stratavar) singleunit(scaled)

Im uncertain though about the best approach to adjusting for individuals’ repeated appearances in the dataset when the dataset is also being adjusted for geographical clustering resulting from the complex sample design. What Stata code should I be using to take account of individual clustering in the -svyset- data?

Thank you very much,
Helena Tunstall
