Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

For the first question--there is no way to produce any indicators for all Pakistan including provinces 5 and 7. This was the decision of the government of Pakistan. We cannot help you to do something that the country explicitly rejects.

For the second question--there have been many postings about weights on the forum. Yes, you should use weights (pweights for estimation commands). Weights are case-specific, not variable-specific. You should prepare an svyset command that also adjusts for weighting and stratification, and use "svy: " in front of estimation commands.

Please review what has already been posted.
