Dear DHS Representative,

Is there any difference in design weight and sample weight?

The reason for asking this question is the following statement from Pakistan DHS Report 2017-18 in the section of sample weight "Design weights were adjusted for cluster-level non-response, household-level non-response, and individual non-response to get the sampling weights for women's and men's surveys respectively".

The Youtube videos on the DHS channel talks about the sample weight but after reading this statement I am not able to understand design weight.

Waiting for your kind reply. (This question has affected me to extent that I was
writing - weighting for your reply)

Best Regards

Dr. Hussain
