Hi DHSers,

I am currently using Ethiopian DHS 2016 data to examine predictors of institutional delivery

Based on IR data, I have created necessary dependent (outcome) and independent variables (varlist). In the analysis I would like to consider the complex survey design nature of DHS survey and used the following STATA code:

gen female_wgt= v005 /1000000

svyset v021 [pw=female_wgt], strata(v023)
svy: melogit outcome varlist if ANC_use==1 || v001:

But I received the following error message:

survey final weights not allowed with multilevel models;
a final weight variable was svyset using the [pw=exp] syntax, but multilevel models require
that each stage-level weight variable is svyset using the stage's corresponding weight()
option an error occurred when svy executed melogit"

I think the problem is with the code I used to specify "pw" or "weight" Could you please help me how I need to write the command for svyset and svy with proper weight code????

Many thanks in advance
