Reproduction of marriage data in report [message #12777] Wed, 12 July 2017 09:19

I am trying to reproduce the age at first marriage table (marriage by exact age) for Nepal DHS 1996 2001 2006 2011, and following the steps above I do not get the results of the DHS reports (for example DHS Nepal 2011 Table 6.4). Could it be that the proportions are calculated differently for waves with all women included?

I took the following steps to calculate the proportion of women married by 18:

g CM18=(v511<18)
gen wt=v005/1000000
svyset v021 [pw=wt], strata(v023)
gen aw = awfactt/100

svy: ratio CM18/aw if (v501==1|v501==2), over(v013)

Thank you so much.
