I have checked posts on wealth deciles and saw the Stata code below

xtile dec_rural = hv271 [pweight = weightvariable] if rural==1, nq(10)
xtile dec_urban = hv271 [pweight = weightvariable] if rural==0, nq(10)

gen decile = dec_rural
replace decile = dec_urban if rural==0.

A quick question- do I include the weight, even if I am going to use svy, for complex survey design later
