Hello DHS Experts,
Thanks to you and this forum, I have learnt a lot on pooling and weighting.
My current focus on pooling is to gain insight into stunting and neonatal mortality across Sub-Saharan Africa. I have pooled 19 countries but I don't want one country to dominate the results. I plan to do logistic regression instead of multi-level modelling.
Accordingly, I have given equal weight to each survey (before pooling) using the following commands:
In addition, I have modified the stratum and psu variables as follows:
quietly summarize v005
Now, I am not sure if I have surveyset correctly- do I still need to divide my weight variable by 1000000? My code is as follows:
I will appreciate your guidance on this.
svyset cluster_id [pweight=wt], strata(stratum_id) vce(linearized) singleunit(centered)
