I am using NFHS 2005 - 06 for my data analysis pertaining to domestic violence, and my sample is nationwide and not restricted to any one state.

I know I should apply domestic national level violence weights in my analysis, but I am using the women's file to get my data from. Should I be applying the women's weights as well?

When you produce statistics on domestic violence, please use the domestic violence weight, and no other weight combined with it.
