Can anyone give any idea about the files attached below?
in one file (type FRW)
frequency table of BORD gives total=43842
but in the another (type FRQ)
frequency table of BORD gives total=43772.
I have one more question.
In the file(type FRQ)
frequency table of V201(total children ever born) gives total=17863.
But BORD is showing total=43772.
why the total of the above mentioned variables are different from each other?

The .FRQ files are unweighted frequency distribution and the .FRW files are weighted frequencies.
