Dear all,

I use the DHS datasets for the Uganda survey year 2006 (dataset UGIR52DT) and 2011 (dataset UGIR61DT). I use a fixed effect model, and the treatment varies at the district level. My main outcome variables are women's outcomes such as employment, household decision-making, and domestic violence.

I have tried to find an answer here about how to use weights (pweight=v005). However, my concern is that I am using different samples:

- The variable employment includes all women; I think I should use (pweight=v005).
- The variable household decision-making only includes married women. So, in this case, I am not sure if I could use v005?
- Domestic violence includes a subgroup of women and women that are ever married. Do you know how I should use weights in this case?

Moreover, since my treatment varies at the district level, are there any problems with using weights? My outcome variables are at the individual level.

Kind regards,
Jennie
