Can any of you please help me with the new 'svyset' 'Stata' code that has to be used for Nepal 2016 household dataset? It used a three-stage design for urban areas and two-stage for rural areas, I am confused. We used the following codes for the previous two-stage surveys, although both of them would provide same estimation

svyset [pw=wgt], psu(hv021) strata(hv022)
svyset hv021[pw=wgt], strata(hv022)

Thank you in advance!

You can use the same commands with the 2016 Nepal DHS.

Thanks a lot but it does not reproduce the survey results that you published.

The problem is probably not with the svyset command, but you don't present your code or the indicator you are looking at, and which table you are comparing to, so we have no idea. If you want us to provide feedback on why your results do not match, please provide your code and the data you are comparing to.
