I am calculating under five mortality for Kenya using DHS data (women's file). I understand in order to correct for (non)response, stratification and survey design, I need to use weights.
This means that for Children dead and children ever born per mother I need to multiply this by the weight of the mother.

Is this correct interpretation?
