I noticed that in the 2008 Philippine DHS data, the variable for strata number (V022) is coded numerically (1-376), whereas in 2013 and 2017, it's nominal with labels (1-34). I am appending the data from different years so I am following the advise here https:// S=Google for creating the cluster and strata IDs prior to using svyset. I can't conduct tests since I'm getting this note "Note: Missing test statistics because of stratum with single sampling unit" when using the 2008 data. I wonder if it has to do with the different stratum coding and what's the workaround for it?

Thank you.

Please reference post # 19872 and use the stratum ID codes.
