I am doing research using the data from DHS 2016. I am only using a sample of women who participated in the domestic violence module.

I am trying to use the svyset option to weight my data. I found that v021 is labeled PSU and v022 is labeled as sample strata. So that I used the following command, but I am not sure if I used the correct one or not?

gen wgt=d005/1000000
svyset [pw=wgt], psu(v021) strata(v022)

pweight: wgt
VCE: linearized
Single unit: missing
Strata 1: v022
SU 1: v021
FPC 1: <zero>

Thank You.
