In case anyone is interested, the ESDS Government confirmed with me that
the variable named AREA is the psu in the Health Survey of England 2002.
 They also sent me a small Stata data file that contains the strata, a
variable called CLUSTER.  This file can be -merge-'ed with the large
main data file, to make the whole shebang amenable to proper survey
analysis, with psu() and strata().
