I'm doing an analysis with Stata by pooling all DHS surveys (children recode) from 1900 - 2013.
When I specifiy surveyset to account for the survey design while running the regression I get no standard errors due to the fact that there are Strata with only one PSU. In some cases this is based on the fact that observations are deleted by Stata while running the regression, due to missing outcome or explanatory variables. In other cases this is based on the sample design.
What should I do with Strata with a single PSU?
There is the option in Stata so that I can treat all of those PSU as PSU's that were selected into the sample with a propability of 1. Is this the right way to handle with all the Strata with only one PSU?

Thanks a lot for your help!
