I received an email saying this had been replied to, but it seems it has since been deleted. By cohort what I meant was survey year. Essentially women surveyed in 2017 are much less likely than women in previous years to report domestic violence.

I want my regression to be: violencefromhusband ~ surveyyear + wealth + education + age + region

1) Given that I am combining 3 survey years do I need to renormalise the weights? I saw in another thread that I should perhaps do that?
2) using the R equivalent survey package to account for the survey structure I would then use V021 for the primary sampling unit and V022 as the strata? But I'm not sure how this works across survey years?
3) if i use the survey package then is there no need to control for region in my regression?

Many thanks
