NFHS-5, when to calculate new weights? [message #25726] Thu, 01 December 2022 05:08 Go to previous message

For India's NFHS-5 I try to analyze women's autonomy data (from the women's data set IAIR74FL). However some relevant questions (e.g.: if allowed to go to the market and under which circumstances) were only posed to a fraction of all individuals (about 1/7).
But every individual in the 'domestic violence' module is included.

I want to aggregate the data on a district level (using the collapse command in stata) and therefore weighting the data correctly is important. Also I want to include as much data as possible.

So do I need to calculate a seperate weight for that situation and variable or do the original individual or domestic violence weights still hold their value?
Furthermore if data from only the domestic violence module is considered some data would distort the final result, due to 3rd party listeners during the interview. Would I need to consider a new response rate (and hence calculate a new weight) for that as well?

Thank you very much for your attention and help.
