Hello,

You are correct that for Benin and Eswatini you should use the grouping of v024 and v025 and for Rwanda it should be v023. For the Liberia survey there was a special variable called scty that is required so please use:
egen strata=group(scty v025 v024)

We will update our strata do file according to this.

Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Best,

Shireen Assaf
