Hi Janet !
I am using DHS data for India (NFHS-5) and using STATA for data analysis. I am using the KR (Child's RECODE) file. My outcome variable is vaccination status ( no vaccination, partial vaccination and full vaccination), which I have created referring and modifying the STATA code available on GIThub.

I am using multinomial logistic regression to understand the association between socio-demographic variables and vacc_status on STATA using the following code :
mlogit vacc_status( i.birth_order) (i.Wealth i.religion i.caste i.household_size i.v106) (i.media_exposure i.age_firstbirth )

I have recoded the variables for better identification. I wanted to know if I need to use the "svyset linearized" everytime I run my regression on STATA, and also whether I am doing it correctly.
