I am trying to use the package "Survey" in R to do a DHS analysis, but I want to be sure that I am setting up the weights properly.
My general code is as follows:

weight<-mydhsdata$v005/1000000
> data <- svydesign(id = mydhsdata$caseid, strata=mydhsdata$v021,
+ weights = weight,
+ data=mydhsdata)


If anyone has any insights on how to set up the dataset in R, I would appreciate the help!
