I am trying to produce "Table 9.3 Vaccinations by the source of information" for India. I have been able to achieve this by multiplying every yes-no row by the weight and then considering it as a value and not every yes = 1 and no = 0, instead if yes = 1, then in actual analysis yes = 1*V005.

Please confirm if I am on the right track in interpreting these values.

I also wanted to confirm that not every row of the database in KR has equal weight in terms of education and rural/urban. To use the variables, we ought to multiply every row value by the V005 to get the proper weighted values for any detailed analysis.

Thanks and regards!]]>

Are you trying to construct the table in Excel? In the KR file, children are the cases or units of analysis or records, not the "rows". If you use a package such as Stata you will be able to specify sampling weights. The weights are case-specific and are not different for different variables. You DO NOT weight data by multiplying the value of a variable by the weight. Please go to the DHS website and read about weights in the Guide to DHS Statistics. ]]>
