Dear Jasmine,

Your August 12 posting on the DHS forum has not been answered, so I have asked the DHS staff to respond. They would like to have more information before trying to answer.

What survey or surveys are you working with? What malaria treatments are you analyzing? When you refer to "females+males", are you referring to children or adults?

Normally, information about malaria treatment is only obtained for children, and the information is attached to either the mother's data or the household's data. There is no pooling of datasets, and no issue of re-weighting the data. Or perhaps you are pooling multiple surveys?

If you can provide this information, we will have a better chance of giving you a useful reply.

Best regards,
