Hi all,

I am a young researcher working with the woman's questionnaire for DHS 2008 Nigeria. I originally used v023 to specify the strata in my svyset command, but now I'm second guessing myself. The sampling documentation indicates that EAs were stratified by urban/rural. Do I need to combine v022 and v023 to create the strata variable?

This is what I currently have:
svyset [pweight=hh_wgt], psu(v021) strata(v023)
