Hi, I am using the following commands to set up DHS (Demographic and
Health Survey data) data for analysis

gen psu =    v021
gen strata = v022
gen sampwt = v005/1000000

svyset psu [pw = sampwt], strata(strata)

I have two questions:

1. Is this the right way to set up data ?
2. For the data set  I am using, for one year, var V022 is missing.
What other var(s) can I consider to use instead of V022

Thanks.

Nikh
