Hello, I am starting to work with DHS data and stata for the first time. I often read that DHS data must be weighted for every analyses. I am using the Namibian DHS 2013. I appended the men's file to the women's file and merged then this combined women's/men's file with the HIV file. At the beginning of my analysis I want to make some descriptive analyses. Now my question is, whether I have to weight the data for descriptive analyses of respondents background characteristics?
