Is there anything different about the continuous survey in terms of its representativeness (i.e. analysts' use of the survey weights)? An article about the use of DHS in the WHO Bulletin mentions "unique challenges involved in the statistical analysis of continuous survey data":

http://www.who.int/bulletin/volumes/90/8/11-095513/en/

What is this referring to? Should continuous survey weights be treated/used any differently than regular DHS survey weights?

Many thanks.
