Hello!

This question is not in reference to DHS but I'm hoping to get help from someone through this forum.

How can we use weights on a data set that is originally representative at provincial level and make it representative at district level?
Since the variables I'm using are at a district level, using a provincially representative data set will result in a sampling bias. So I'm trying to somehow weight the data in a way that it becomes representative at the district level.

It would be of immense help if i can get a response for my query.
