Dear sir or madam,

I would like to ask about weighting in merging KR and HR files.
My unit of analysis is children aged 0-23 months.

So, Is it okay weighting like v005/1000000 or do i need to modify weighting formula?

These are the weights for the different sample selections/units of analysis:

Unit of analysis
Households: hv005
Household members: hv005
Women: v005
Children: v005
Men: mv005
Domestic Violence: d005
HIV test results: hiv05

You need to divide the sampling weight by 1,000,000.

Examples:

In Stata:
generate wgt = v005/1000000
tab var [iweight=wgt]

In SPSS:
COMPUTE WGT = V005/1000000.
WEIGHT by WGT.
