I am pooling Pakistan Demographic Health Survey of 1990-91 and 2012-13. I am looking at the trends in unintended fertility over time. Do i need to re-normalize the weights before pooling, even when I am taking survey year as a covariate?
Second, my analytical sample consist of those women who had birth in last five years and among them I am restricting my analysis to most recent birth. In that case when I am renormalizing weight, number of women aged 15-49 interviewed should be the total that were interviewed or that subsample.
