I'm interested in looking at the DHS children's recode by pooling multiple countries (one survey from each, all Phase 6), but I'm sort of confused whether or not to weight the data, and how to go about it if so. I know v005 can be used for a single country, but I've mostly been finding answers related to single countries or the Household Recode so far so I'm unsure.

I'm planning on simply concatenating the 5 datasets.

I'm using SAS, if that matters. Suggestions on coding would also be great, but I'm mostly just confused as to how to go about weighting.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.
