Hi,
I am conducting a secondary data analysis using the individual women's file from the Pakistan 2012-13 dataset.
In the 'Guide to DHS Statistics' it states the command to use in SPSS in order to apply the sampling weights, is as follows:

COMPUTE rweight = V005/1000000
WEIGHT by rweight.

I put this into my SPSS syntax and the following error occurs in the output window:
Error #4381 in column 1. Text: WEIGHT
> the expression ends unexpectedly
>execution of this command stops

Column 1 in the data view is the Case ID values. In addition I could not underline 'rweight' in the syntax, if this is (one of) the problems?

Any help would be much appreciated.
Many thanks,
Emily



Kind Regards,
Emily
