Dear,

I am trying to replicate the result present in Table 10.9 of the Mozambique 2015 survey report (% of children under-5 who took ACT for fever).
I am using the code we generally use to create this indicator in the other datasets (see below):

gen actntime=.
replace actntime=0 if h22==1
egen byte _actntime=anymatch(ml13e), v(1)
recode actntime 0=1 if _actntime==1

Published estimate is of 35.6%. With this code I found the same sample size, but the estimate is of 0.6%. I did not find in the dataset another variable indicating that the child used ACT, only s311e (which has exactly the same 10 children as yes). Is there any other variable I should be using?

Thank you!

Best,
Fernanda
