Hi, I am trying to cluster my standard errors but I am getting all insignificant results. I am trying to see the effect maternal education has on malaria. Is there anything you would advice, I am using the Kenyan 2015 MIS. I am using the IR and PR files which I have already merged

I already tried
generate wt = v005/1000000
svyset (pweight=wt), psu (v021) strata (v022)

Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

In general, and in the Kenya 2015 MIS, the PSU (sample cluster) is given by v001 or v021 in the IR file and hv001 or hv021 in the PR file. These two variables can almost always be used interchangeably. What do you mean by "didn't work"? Are you putting together an svyset command? What kind of error are you getting?
