I have a related question to the first post. I am confused as to which variable in DHS corresponds to strata. I use a large number of DHS surveys, including the older and the newer rounds. Although it has been often recommended
on the forum to generate strata using v024 and v025 there are surveys with a more complex strata specification and given that I pull many countries together I would not like to make a mistake of incorrectly specifying the strata where they are not a combination of urban/rural and region.

Throughout the forum according to some responses, the recommendation was to use v022, in other responses v023. It looks like these variables are similar but not exactly the same. Would you be able to clarify what the difference between the v022 and v023 is and which one is closer to representing strata?

Thank you!
