I am using a BRFSS dataset and therefore it has a complex sampling design. I would like to describe who are the kinds of people that report medical debt and medical bankruptcy and therefore thought cluster analysis might be appropriate. 

I've looked through all the manuals and even searched survey analysis and on cluster analyses and can't find the answer. Is there a way to perform a cluster analysis and account for the survey weights? 

A second possibility would involve creating a new representative dataset on which to perform the standard cluster analysis. How best would one create a new dataset using the survey weighting which would approximate the population?

Thanks for your consideration
