A response from technical expert, Dr. Tom Pullum:

Your question is not about DHS data. As a question about demographic methods, it is not clear. In any case, it is beyond the scope of what DHS staff can answer. I hope some other user will respond.

Actually I have tried to find the age specific death rates for adults in the age group 15-64 (the age groups are divided in 5 years age groups viz 15-19, 20-24 etc ) by the method of lexis diagram backward projection method for NFHS4 data. But the values are not matching. It is almost same for initial age groups but varying from the actual values in the last age groups. I cannot understand where I have done wrong.
