Hi Trevor:

Thanks very much for your assistance. Here is the code I've been using:


/* creating psu and strata for pooled samples/countries */
egen psupool= group(idhspsu sample)
egen stratapool= group(idhsstrata sample)

gen weight=hiv05/1000000
gen weight2=1
svyset psupool, weight(weight) strata(stratapool) singleunit(centered) || _n, weight(weight2)


My data still shows non-constant weights in some of the PSU's

Below is a sample of 4 PSU's from Angola. I checked and many other data (including freshly downloaded versions from DHS) have non-constant weights within PSUs.

Thanks again, and looking forward to any further advice from you.

best - cY


. list sample idhspsu psupool weight weight2 v005 in 200/250

. list sample idhspsu psupool weight weight2 v005 in 200/250
