For example,In my analysis,Height-for-Age in <6 months age group the percent of HAZ below <-2 SD is 16.23% (n=1115),while in the 2016 EDHS report the percent of HAZ <-2 SD in <6 months of age is 16.2% (n=1,108). My Question is The percent of result both in my analysis and the 2016 EDHS report are approximately the same,but why the number of children differs?

Following is a response from Senior DHS Stata Specialist, Tom Pullum:

The tables using household data, with very few exceptions, are restricted to de facto residents (hv103=1). It happens that even some children under 6 months of age do not satisfy this requirement. If you enter "tab stunted [iweight=hv005/1000000] if hc1<6 & hv103==1" you will get 1108 (rounded) cases.
