Hello,
I am using couples data from 2013. I know I should use the men's weight variable, but I have questions about the strata variable.

I have
gen wgt=mv005/1000000

I'm confused about which variable I should use for the strata.

Would it be
svyset [pw=wgt], psu(mv021) strata(mv022)
mv022 is listed as the sample stratum number

or

svyset [pw=wgt], psu(mv021) strata(mv023)
mv023 is listed as the sample domain in codebook, but the tutorial video showed v023 being used as strata variable https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpXPWMUsb94.
