Hi,

Am conducting analysis on domestic violence among males in African countries.
However, I get different totals for Namibia depending on the weight used, which is not the case with other countries.

I have also used svy: tab which gives the percent but just double checking on the totals.

For example, using the variable dm111 for experienced any of the listed wife/partner's actions
The totals are 1105 for the unweighted and manual weighted totals using mv005, and 1002 for the manual weight using dm005.

What is causing this for Namibia? Based on previous posts, I suppose I need to use the dm005 as the weight. Is it something I should be worried about?

Following is a response from Senior DHS Specialist, Kerry MacQuarrie:

dm005 is the weight variable you want to use.

Thank you. My question was why am I getting different totals only for Namibia. I get different totals for any variable I use for Namibia once I use the dm005 as the weight variable which is not the case with the rest of the countries. Is there anything am doing wrong?

We will look into the construction of dm005 in the Namibia 2013 survey and will let you know if we find that it was different from other surveys.
