I'm doing an analysis with the cluster survey data. The normalized weight in all cluster is calculated to be 1. There is no difference in weighted and unweighted calculation. In this context, how can be analysis done? Is it a self -weighted data?

I will be thankful for your help. ]]>

The DHS weights, except for domestic violence weight, are usually calculated on the cluster level, which means all units within the same cluster would share the same weight value. Therefore, when producing any of the survey estimates on the cluster level, you can consider weighted or un-weighted estimates (both will be the same).
