I have two questions about Namibia 2013 Data use:

1. According to the 2013 Namibia Final Report, the total number of women and men was 41,665. However, only 41,646 observations are available in the PR dataset. Any insights in this will be greatly appreciated!

2. I would like to duplicate the Table 17.5 from the 2013 Namibia Final Report. Am I using the correct weights?

proc surveyfreq data=nm.NMPR61FL2;
tables hv104*SH328;
cluster Hv021;
strata Hv023;
weight newWeight; /*newWeight = hv028/1000000*/

3. Should I use different weights for biomarkers (e.g., fasting blood glucose)?
