The statistical analysis in the Bendavid et al. revision still seems to have at least one fatal bug.

For the sake of transparency, I should elaborate on this point which I left vague before.

The authors said by email that they used a built-in Stata function and aren’t sure themselves how the software used the input weights. I suspect they misapplied that function (too complicated to tweet why) but I don’t know Stata well enough to be sure; it seems neither do they.
