Ghana DHS 2014 factor weight file - possible error? [message #9319] Wed, 09 March 2016 19:32

there were two concerns in this file:

the uploaded factor weight file for Ghana DHS 2014 has the same n (11835) on the urban tab as the common tab. The means and SDs also appear to be the same, while the factor weights are different. This would imply that the dataset was not filtered to only include urban respondents for the urban PCA.

The common tab includes animal ownership but the urban tab does not - normally this would be the other way around.

Have I missed something or are there errors in this file? If so, could you upload a corrected one?
