Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

You would specify svyset as I described, and then run "svy: reg y x". This will provide all the adjustments.

I still don't understand why you want to treat districts as clusters. Perhaps you are thinking of a multi-level model, in which individuals are nested in clusters and clusters are nested in districts. I just don't think that's necessary or helpful. Perhaps other users will contribute some thoughts, but I cannot add anything to what I have already said.
