Hi, I am trying to get district level estimates/proportions of variables related to norms, domestic violence etc. NFHS-4 and NFHS-5 mentions that these variables are not representative at the district level. Is there any way around this problem ?

I tried to get district level proportion for the variable s930 (has a mobile phone that respondent uses). I used the svyset and svy command. Results show the mean by district, but standard errors and confidence interval are missing. Stata produces a note: [Note: Missing standard errors because of stratum with single sampling unit.]

The code I used. (tried both ways of generating stratum.)

* generate stratum
gen stratum = v023

* alternative strata based on region and urban/rural
* egen stratum = group(v024 v025)

gen wt = v005/1000000
svyset v021 [pw=wt], strata(stratum)
svy: mean s930, over(sdistri)
