Dear Sir, May I ask some questions for my data analysis.

1. Which variable should be used to identify the primary caregiver of the child selected for child discipline module? sh15a or sh149? Are those two variables same or different? Could you please explain me?

2. Using sampling weight

I want to investigate the factors predicting violent disciplinary practices towards the children in Myanmar using multiple logistic regression (binary logistic regression).

Unit of analysis is child selected for child discipline module.

I restrict cases sh148==hvidx .

Directly using sampling weight of PR file is correct or wrong. (For both descriptive statistics and for using in svy commands)

If wrong, how should I modify the weight?

(I found some suggestions to multiply the weight by number of children 2-14 years in the household)

Is it really needed to do?

If I need to do like that, could you please instruct me to get the number of children aged 2 to 14 years in a household.
