I'm not exactly sure how this helps me confirm it. Doing this still makes STATA output provide the exact same results (e.g., for a tabulation, logistic regression etc.,). It also did not change the number of strata and PSU's STATA mentions when any command is ran.

I have been running "generate weight = mv005/1000000" & "cluster_ID=group(mv024 mv001)" & "svyset [pw=weight], psu(cluster_ID) strata(mv022) singleunit(centered)".

I understand how this may be the "correct" method because clusters are numbered within states, but this method does not change any output and once again provides nothing close to the PSU's mentioned in the final report.
