Hello. I am using the DHS 2015 Afghanistan data.

I am interested in making a compilation of all women between the age of 14-49, including those who qualify for ever-married survey as well as those who didn't qualify and were never married. I merged the PR file with the IR file for all women, to get the characteristics of the ever-married women from the IR file, particularly age of first cohabitation.

The PR file has the household sample weight (hv005), and the IR file has the women's individual sample (v005) for those who qualify. Can you give me some guidance on how I should proceed with the sample weighting? Should I just use the household sample weight for all women?

Thank you
