Hello

I recently encountered differences in statistical significance for my SPSS and STATA analysis. One explanation is that I am using different types of weights. In SPSS I simply click on weight by the Sampleweight variable but in STATA I was using svyset [pweight=Sampleweight]. I see that the DHS manual recommends one to use iweight, but how can one use iweight for a cross tabulation and regression modelling?

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards

Lana
