In Yawo's example, I'm not certain exactly what the data is, but it looks to me like this is a combination of data for women and for men, and using the HIV weight (hiv05). Women and men's datasets have separate different weights, but the weights for women in a PSU (cluster) are constant as are the weights for men.

You may be interested in a recent publication Multilevel Modeling Using DHS Surveys: A Framework to Approximate Level-Weights that provides information on how to produce approximate level-1 and level-2 weights from published data.
