I would like to ask how to apply the weight for Bangladesh SPA..
Following the previous discusion for Kenya/ Malawi, using facility raw dataset is it:

gen fcwgt=facwt/1000000
egen strata=group(region factype)
and then
svyset [pw=fcwgt], psu (facil) strata(strata)

Thank you very much!

Following is a response from Senior Data Processing Specialist, Rajendra Dangol:


Please use FACWT/1000000 for facility level weight and PROVWT/1000000 for provider level weight. Your code seems right.
