When using software to estimate the variance or standard error of statistics calculated from complex survey samples with clustering and stratification, if the sample contains data on individuals, is the lowest level of clustering considered to be the smallest cluster that contains the individual, or the individual him/her/ze's self?

I'm using the R survey package, if that makes any difference.
