```Arka-

following questin..

1. Were all districts in the target population included in the sample?
Or, were districts sampled?

2. Are the final sampling weights the probability sampling weights? Or
was there adjustment to the probabilithy weights (post-stratification,
"raking")  so that the sample results will better reflect population
census proportions? If the weights are so adjusted,  are the original
sampling weights available to you?
