I replied to Jose Maria privately with copies of the do files. The paper was: Waltermaurer, E, M Butsashvili, N Avaliani, S Samuels, and LA McNutt. 2013. An examination of domestic partner violence and its justification in the Republic of Georgia. BMC Womens Health 13, no. 1: 44. and is at: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1472-6874/13/44 It contained only the -svy: glm- analyses. To correct an error: In some instances of -svy: poisson-, the CI for a predicted *risk*, not the estimated RR, exceeded 1.0. log relative risk regression was the choice of my co-authors. My personal choice would have been -svy: logistic-, followed by -margins- for interpretation of risks.

In others, the CIs for the RR exceeded 1.0 We were able to get -svy: glm, link(log) to work by slight modification of the models. > > You still have not shown us the actual commands you ran and the problematic -svy: glm- output. > Please do so. Right now we have no actual evidence of the problem.. The only difference that I can see in the output of -glm- and -svy: glm, with the "eform" option is that -glm- heads the coefficient table "Risk Ratio" whereas -svy: glm- has a heading "exp(b)", which is the same thing. > > > Steve Samuels > sjsamuels@gmail.com > Dear Steve: could you give the reference of your paper and the complete Stata code command? I am very interested in this subject.
