As far as I understand, you did not sample the countries. Rather whichever participating countries were (a convenience sample, or if you are lucky to have this survey in all those countries, a census of the country population), the samples were taken independently in those countries. So the countries act as (super) strata, and whatever PSUs were taken in those countries would be the PSUs to go into the design statement. What you are thinking of (the big differences between West and East) would be subpopulations, and you can analyze those separately using -subpop()- option of -svy- commands.On 10/23/08, b.todosijevic@utwente.nl <b.todosijevic@utwente.nl>wrote:Dear Stata users: I need to analyze a comparative data set (World Values Survey), consisting of a number of country samples, using svy: commands.I want to obtain various estimated for countries grouped asEastern orWestern Europe. I wonder if it would be appropriate to specify countries as psu's (clusters), and regions as strata (East-West) in svyset command. E.g., svyset countries [pw=weight], strata(west).
