Hi
I am trying to do some analysis using more than one dataset.
I have appendend but I don't know how to use the weights with more than one dataset.
Can you help me, please?

I need to do:
1. Propottion of HH with universal covarage (I need to understand which variables to use) / year (survey) / province
2. % of people who sought care in Community health workers / year (survey) / province
3. % of under 5 that slept under ITN / year (survey) / province
4. % of population that slept under ITN by gender / year (survey) / province
5. % of HH with IRS / year (survey) / province

Following is a response from DHS Lead Malaria Research Analyst, Cameron Taylor:

Thanks for your question. For appending datasets you do need to take into account weighting. You need to construct unique ID codes for the clusters (PSUs) in the separate surveys. I suggest the following way of creating a new cluster and stratum id that is unique taking into account both survey years. Construct a unique PSU ID with "egen clusterid=group(hv007 hv021)". Similarly, if hv024 is the stratum variable, you can construct a unique stratum ID with "egen stratumid=group(hv007 hv024)". Then you put clusterid and stratumid in the appropriate places in svyset.

For your questions about how to calculate different indicators I have included the code below. In each of the example code I limited the tabulation to the Mozambique 2015 data (hv007==2015), since I want to match the report to make sure my tabulation is correct before proceeding. I wasn't sure what you were wanting with request #2 (% of people who sought care in Community health workers). However, if you are wanting to look at malaria care seeking data you need to use the KR file since your unit of analysis is children with fever.

1. Proportion of HH with universal coverage (I need to understand which variables to use) / year (survey) / province
5. % of HH with IRS / year (survey) / province

Thanks a lot.
I am going to try this right now.
