Thank you very immensely for the expedited response. Yes, I was referring to the weighted counts. The similar counts in the SPSS output now make more sense.
To clarify further, I plan to examine outcomes for all and also carry out a disaggregated analysis for males and females. So, I renamed the variables of interest in both data files, with similar data characteristics, created a gender variable in each dataset, and then merged (appended ?). Sure, I will appreciate more information about renumbering the cluster and stratum variables in SPSS. Also, I am curious to learn the available options for handling the sample weights.

Take care.
