Dear user, these variables are typically standard across all of our files. If you are using the women's or children's file:

weight = v005 (it must be divided by 1000000)
cluster = v001 (the primary sampling unit is v021; v001 and v021 are the same in this survey)
strata = v023

Please refer to the standard recode manual if you have questions about how to calculate specific indicators: DHSG4.pdf

Thank you,

Lindsay Mallick, Lead Research Analyst
