Following is response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

I agree with the approach you describe. It's what I do when looking at trends. Regarding the question about clusters---these are census enumeration areas drawn at random from a sampling frame. The number of clusters within a region, as well as the specific clusters themselves, varies from one DHS survey to the next. The specification of svyset will build in adjustments for sample weights, clusters, and strata. After including svyset and svy, you don't need any further adjustments related to the clusters.
