I am analyzing data from Kenya DHS (2008-2009). I would like to know whether the weighting of data can be done using the (Data icon then weighting) option on spss or do I need to do it from the Complex Surveys option?

Weighting the data in SPSS can be done in a syntax window, or by using the "Data" option (then select: Weight Cases | Weight Cases by | select your Frequency Variable).

However, you need to divide the sampling weight by 1,000,000.

Example syntax:

COMPUTE WGT = V005/1000000.

Following is a list of sample weights used in DHS datasets:

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