Hi,

I have appended men and women DHS for Uganda and also the AIS survey. I am confused now on which weights to use (I am using STATA).

I read in several forums that for sampling weights I need to divide the variable v005 by 100,000 and to set svyset [pweight = weight], psu(v021) strata(v023). For simple descriptive statistics do I also need to use the pweights as I defined them above (using the command svy: ....)?

Thanks!

Claudia
