Hi. Maybe someone can help me with a doubt on the use of sampling weights in MICS datasets. I am studying child malnutrtion and I am using the unit of analysis "Mothers or primary caretakers of children under the age of five (ch.sav)", with the variable weight "chweight: Children's sample weight". Is the correct one? are there particular rules to be applied for weighting? I do not find a detailed procedure description in the MICS documentation, nor I find a forum such as this one.
