Following is a response from Senior DHS staff member, Tom Pullum:

For your first question--when you merge the AR variables onto the IR+MR file, the clusters and strata will be the same as in the IR and MR files. Only the weight is adjusted. Because of the line "rename mv* v*", the clusters are v001 (or v021) and the strata are v023. The weight is the only thing that changes in svyset--it is not v005 or mv005, but is hiv05.

Second, tobacco use is separated into smoking (mv463aa) and non-smoking (hv463ab). This is an example of a multiple options question--there are many in DHS data. If you enter "tab mv463aa mv463ab" you will see that some men use both types. Yes, 5.4% includes both types.
