I want to run my logit model with fixed effects to control for the unobserved heterogeneity across different districts. So, I use xtset command to set the data according to the districts and then I run the xtlogit command with fixed effects. However, when I use another way to get the same results that is by using svy: logit x z i.y, where i.y represents the districts fixed effect dummies, I get different results. So, I want to know which method is correct. Can I Ignore the svy command while running my fixed effect model?

Another response from Tom Pullum:

I would include fixed effects by having "i.y" in the model. Someone else may have different advice.
