Thank you so much. The information you provided is really helpful.
However we have two follow up questions:

1: The similar information is not available for 2012-13 dataset even on the website. The information we found was total population based on 1998 population census and not the number of households. Is there a way out?

2: The guideline of weights are for two level, one is cluster and other is women/men/household. We are using three level modelling where we also wanted to add third level (children) as one mother has more than one child for most cases. Form reading the sampling procedure of DHS, it can be assume that children have equal probability to be in sample, so can we add weight=1 for third level?
