Dear DHS users,
I would like to calculate the Maternal Mortality ratio of Burkina Faso based on the 2010 survey. I have followed some steps from the forum.
to get the GFR based on the tfr2.
I have tried to get the statistics in the repport which is 200 but i got different result

tfr2, len(7) maxage(49)
weight variable is v005
Preparing table of events and exposure for 7 year(s) preceding the survey
Period covered: 9/2003 to 8/2010
Central date is 2007.1895
Number of cases (women): 17032
Number of person-years (weighted): 103011.45
Number of events (weighted): 21528.82


disp 21528.82/ 103011.45=.20899444

I have tried different length (3) and different maxage (44) but still the result is far from 200.
thanks in advance for your support.
best regards!
