Dear sir or Madame,

I am student at NIPH, Cambodia. I have a questions on Table 20.8 Marital control exercised by husbands.
Would you mind telling me about how the number of ever married women were defined and variable coded?
I can not find the same number of women when I did.

Best Regards,

sokha

You are requesting column percentages (col) instead of row percentages (row), and your are asking for unweighted numbers of cases (obs) instead of weighted (count).
Also the svyset should use wt instead of d005 for the weight.
I also added in the selection of v502!=0 to exclude never married women, although that isn't strictly necessary as they drop out anyway.
Try the following:
gen wt=d005/1000000
svyset [pw=wt], psu(v021) strata (v023)
svy: tab v013 d101a if v044==1 & v502!=0, row count

Did you follow the code I provided? I realized that there is actually 1 case coded missing on d101a that is included in the denominator of all ever married women. If you use the following code:
gen wt=d005/1000000
svyset [pw=wt], psu(v021) strata (v023)
* Recode 1 case of missing to code 9
recode d101a (.=9) if v044==1 & v502!=0
svy: tab v013 d101a if v044==1 & v502!=0, row count

then the result show 3245 cases, exactly as in table 20.8, and the percentages in the first column of table 20.8 agree with the percentages in the yes column below, e.g. .2901 is 29.0 percent.
. svy: tab v013 d101a if v044==1 & v502!=0, row count
(running tabulate on estimation sample)

We do not have a do file for these indicators. If you post your code and your results we will review and provide feedback on where the problem is.

Hi,
I am currently looking at intimate partner violence in Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Ethiopia, Mozambique.
Now my questions

Q.1 Variable d111 speaks to the kind of IPV am looking at (physical, emotional and sexual violence). Do I use it or are the other variables that could sum up to the same, and if there are, what are the stata commands to arrive at that?
Q2. Which module do I use, Couples' Recode, Births Recode, Household Recode, Individual Recode?
Please assist with the above questions.
Thank a lot and looking forward to reading from you
Best
