Hi,

I am using a pooled sample of the Kenya 2003, 2008-09, and 2014 datasets for only women who answered the domestic violence module. So far I have done my regressions unweighted, but I know that this likely causes error towards the samples in 2014 (since the total sample size is much larger in this dataset) and have used a control variable indicating the interview year to control for interview variation.

I was wondering what the correct procedure (in STATA) to generate weights for this type of pooled sample, I'm assuming I use the dv005 weight.

Thanks so much!
