I write my MA- Thesis of Domestic Violence in Afghanistan. I have two questions about the sampling frame in the Afghanistan DHS Survey.

In the Report (Page1 about the result of the survey the CSO wrote, that they used in Afghanistan a two-stage sample design. After that I read the your report of "Sampling and Household Listing Manual"( ept2012_DHSM4.pdf on page 15 you wrote, that the DHS bases on a two-stage cluster sampling procedure. My first question ist, if the two-stage cluster sampling procedure in the "Sampling and Household Listing Manual" is the same as the two stage sample design in the DHS Afghanistan Survey report 2015?

And if so, did they use in the DHS Afghanistan Survey the methods with probability proportional to size (PPS) in the first stage. I am not sure how they selected the cluster, because they didn't write detailed information about the sample procedure in the first stage.

Thank you for your help,
