Following is a response from DHS Senior Sampling Specialist, Mahmoud Elkasabi:

The DHS weights, except for domestic violence weight, are usually calculated on the cluster level, which means all units within the same cluster would share the same weight value. Therefore, when producing any of the survey estimates on the cluster level, you can consider weighted or un-weighted estimates (both will be the same).

Thank you.
