I wanted to extract district-wise data on the percentage of women who have a bank account from the Household members (or Persons) Recode state file. I am not sure whether I have set the syntax right; I need clarity on the same :

gen pwt=.
replace pwt= hv005/1000000
svyset hv021 [pw=pwt], strata(hv023)

Since the NFHS-5 sample is a stratified two-stage sample. therefore shouldn't the syntax look like :
svyset hv021 [pw=pwt], strata(hv023) || hhid , strata(hv001)

My understanding is that in the second stage: about 25-30 households are looked after, identifying the villages ( in the first stage)

However, I have no experience working on NFHS data sets, so I am not sure what's the right thing to do. Kindly help me and respond to it as soon as anyone can.

Thank you for your help.

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

First, for pweights you do not need to divide hv005 by 1000000. Many people do this, but it is not necessary because Stata automatically re-scales pweights to have a mean of 1.

Second, you do not need a multi-level version of svyset. Your first version of svyset is sufficient.

Third, the clusters and strata were numbered separately in each state. You need commands such as "egen cluster_id=group(v021 v024)" and "egen stratum_id=group(v023 v024)".

Then "svyset cluster_id [pw=hv005], strata(stratum_id)" should be correct for svyset.
