I am examining HIV testing behavior among men and women in Liberia, West Africa. 2013 Liberia Demographic and Health Survey men and women dataset: I would like to inquire about appending the men and women (unmarried persons) datasets together.
My question is how do I create accurate pooled weights (2013 Liberia DHS men and women data)? Do I need to also create a pooled strata and primary sampling unit (psu)? If so, any guidance will be appreciated. Many of posts in the forum discuss pooling multiple countries or years together but I am seeking guidance regarding gender pooling. What modifications will I need to make to the weights to get accurate results once the data has been appended? Thank you

Best, Miatta Dennis
