Hello,

I am pooling BR datasets for Pakistan for 1990-91, 2006-7, 2012-13, and 2016-17. What are the correct steps I should take in weighting these appended surveys as one dataset for analysis. PSU is my primary concern because there maybe different surveys using same PSU number and also what is correct strata variable for these surveys in Pakistan.

Another question is the "place of delivery" question in BR file is it about the last birth during last 5 years or it all births in last five years. And vaccination questions do they apply to " living children born in last 3 years" or all children born in last five year ?

Would appreciate your help, also I am a novice so please be a little more descriptive with your suggestions so I could follow easily.
