I have been trying to replicate data from the Mozambique 2011 DHS using SPSS Complex Samples, but failed to do so. I want to use Complex Samples because I need confidence intervals. Whatever I do, I get a warning that the weight variable is ignored. I scrutinized the User Forum as well as the MeasureDHS website, but could not find the right information. On the contrary, some info was conflicting, e.g. whether or not to divide the sample weight by 1000000. Could someone help me out by providing detailed info on how to complete the CS Analysis Plan? As far as I know, the design of the Mozambique DHS is quite typical for DHS (stratification by provinces and urban/rural; pps for clusters; fixed cluster sizes, 20 for urban and 25 for rural).

Thank you very much for your help!
