Hi there,
When i applied svy command to see the sample size for married adolescent woman for six countries of south asia (Afganistan, bangladesh,India,Nepal,Maldives and pakistan ), the sample size for afganistan , maldives, nepal and pakistan is decreased than the unweighted one. I was wondering, isnt it supposed to increase than the unweighted one? Can you please explain me what is it supposed to be in actual ? i have used commands,

tab country
svy: tab country, missing count format (%9.0f)

and the stata outputs are attached as attachments below.

kind regards,
