No, those statistics I mentioned are all likelihood based which would not include any adjustments to the variance for the sampling.

Re: Proc surveylogistic regression goodness-of-fit test

Currently, the only available goodness-of-fit tests in PROC SURVEYLOGISTIC are found in the default output in the Model Fit Statistics and "Testing Global Null Hypothesis: BETA=0" tables. This is really a limitation with logit models in general on complex survey data in that there are not a lot of measures that can be used to assess fit that are defined.  The Hosmer-Lemeshow test, for example, has been shown to be inappropriate in complex sample designs. This is discussed in the following reference

Thank you for your reply. I tried clicking on the link for the reference and was redirected to this website: http://www.amstat.org/ASA/Membership/Sections-and-Interest-Groups.aspx

 

Is there another way to get this paper? Maybe it requires subscription to Amstat to access the paper. Thanks!

Are the statistics reported in the default output for model fitness adjusted to account for complex sample surveys? Would really appreciate that information.

Thanks!

Thank you for the link. Do you know if SUDAAN or any other software that provides goodness-of-fit test for logistic regression of complex survey data?
