Dear Steve and others It is a DHS survey from Measuredhs. I will be using svy: commands in due course - I am trying to get my ideas straight first. The survey variables are usually common svy: v001 [weight=v005], strata(v024) // usually, though weights vary with statistics svy: reg ....... // as before ?
