Often, it is of interest to account for differences in countries population when doing a multi-country data analysis.

Please how can I go about it?

This is totally different from the sampling weight provided by the DHS.

thank you

This kind of question has come up many times on the forum. If you search with keyword "multi-country " you should find answers to your question.
