Dears,

I am doing analysis using Ethiopian 2016 DHS immunization coverage data. Before that I wanted to reproduce the immunization coverage report (EDHS 2016). However, the percentage coverage from my calculations shows a slight difference.

I am using the following STATA code (BCG as example)

gen age = v008 - b3

gen bcg=0
replace bcg=1 if h2>0 & h2<8
replace bcg =. if age<12 | age>23 | b5==0

I followed the same procedure for other vaccines.

Could you please suggest other correct way to reproduce the result in the final report?


Kind regards,

We have changed the way we calculate age to use a more accurate calculation. See https://www.dhsprogram.com/data/calculating-the-age-of-child ren.cfm for more details.

change the first command to use: gen age = b19
