I am handling DHS dataset for the first time in SPSS.
I am using data of household members (PR) from NFHS 4 (India). If I use household weights (HV005) the totals of weighted frequency do not match with the unweighted totals. What is the solution to this problem?

Dear User,
Here is a description of the PR dataset:

Household Listing Data - Household Member Recode (PR)
This dataset has one record for every household member. It includes variables like sex, age, education, orphanhood,
height and weight measurement, hemoglobin, etc. It also includes the characteristics of the households where the individual
lives or was visiting. The unit of analysis (case) in this file is the household member.

Does this help answer your query or do you still need assistance?
