Dear DHS experts,

I would like to create a cluster variable using individual level factors (education*wealth*residence) and use it as a sampling unit
in my multilevel modeling. The PSU (enumeration area) and SSU (households) are already available in the data.

1) could I use PSU, SSU and this newly created cluster as the third sampling stage in three level multilevel model?

2) could I use PSU and this newly created cluster as the second stage in a two level multilevel model?

3) could I use HH as PSU and this newly created cluster as the SSU in a two level multilevel model?

My aim is to study inequality/variation (via ML model) in health care use across the new cluster variable.

I appreciate in advance for the technical support
Regards,
