Hello,
I am doing my thesis on the determinants of help seeking behavior of victims of violence. I have an appended dataset that constitutes 10 countries in which DHS included a domestic violence module. for my regression, i'm running a logit fixed effect model. However, i haven't used any weight yet. Should i use the domestic violence weight? if yes, how do i use it? Do i just generate weight = d005/1000000 and thats it or is there more to it?
thank you

A response from Senior DHS Stata Specialist, Tom Pullum:

Yes, that's all there is to it.
