Description

Dear Support,

I have a question on how to analyse weights.
In the handouts of the Moodle, I found that I should
consider the survey complex design and set data this way with STATA.

svyset psu [pw=weight], strata(strata) singleunit(centered).

Now, I am interested in clustering the standard errors by individual (pid)
or in running a random effect model to account for individual heterogeneity,
but STATA does not allow to svy data in this way
and run this kind of model (which should be reasonable).

Would you think that it is possible to avoid controlling for the complex structure of the
survey? If not, what would I actually miss?

Thank you.
Best,
Lydia
