Hello,

My unit of analysis is households but my study is based on children under the age of 5 years. I use variables from Household file (PKHR), Birth Recode (PKBR) and Child Recode (PKKR). I want to know which weights should I use and when? For example, there are men sample weights, women sample weights and household sample weights but not for children. Also, at what stage do I apply the svyset command because I use mmerge commands as well.

Thanks.
