Hi DHS experts,

I would like to apply the woman-level sampling weights to the Senegal 1986 dataset but the IR and HH files do not contain v021 (the usual psu variable) or v022 (the usual strata variable).

Please advise how I should weight the data.

I normally use this stata syntax for other DHS datasets:

generate wgt = v005/1000000
svyset[pw=wgt], psu(v021) strata(v022) singleunit(centered)

I have v001 (cluster number) which presumably can be used in place of v021? But what should I use for strata?

Thanks for your help,

Laura
