Dearn DHS experts,

I am using facility audit and clients ( ANC and postpartum data files) SPA 2015 dataset of Nepal. I have a look at how to create svyset for these datasets, also found that we need to create strata.
One of the threads in this forum creates strata using two variables in the datasets that are facility type and region.

egen strata=group(factype region)

But Nepal SPA final report page 20 ( reads that facility were selected using facility type and ecological region(it has three categories). There is a variable (region) which has 5 categories.
I did not find the ecological region related variable.
Could you help me what should I do at this stage?. I am looking for your suggestions.

With kind regards,

Following is a response from the Data Processing Specialist for the Nepal 2015 SPA, Rajendra Dangol:

We have the eco-dev region variable (13 cells) only in the recode file. In the raw file, users can create 13 categories eco-dev region or 3 ecological region categories using the DISTRICT variable. Example of CSPro logic is given below. I hope this helps.
