Hi Bridgette and Anjushreen,

As a follow-up to the previous question, which makes the issue very clear, I wanted to ask about a different scenario.

If one wanted to conduct some methodological analysis including all regions included in the PDHS 2017-18, are there any methodological restrictions (other than the political reasons) in combining the weights (for example hv028 and shv028) by replacing the zeros in hv028 by the non-zero values within shv028?

In other words - are the weights for AJK and GB (e.g. shv028) created using the same algorithm as the national weights (e.g. hv028)? If in the future the political situation is resolved, is this how the new national weight (including GB and AJK) would be created?


Thanks,

Diego
