Dear Sirs,

I am collapsing Egypt DHS data on the district level in order to estimate the impact of district interventions. I run a FEs, a REs and a diff-in-diff model. Shall I use weights in this case? And if the answer is yes, how can I weigh data on the district level? At which stage should I weigh data (collapsing data, calculating district-level indicators, running the regression, etc.)?

Also, do I need to adjust for the clusters (the primary sampling units) and the strata?

Thank you.

Kind regards,
Amira
