Following is a response from our Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

Is "weight_all = v005/1000000(Total number of households during each survey year/sample households in each survey)" a verbal description of a Stata command? If so, what command? It's not clear what you are doing to the weights, other than dividing by 1000000, which will not affect the results at all.

The "Population size" in the results has been distorted by svyset, particularly by the components other than the weight. You can ignore it.
