Hi,

I am trying to calculate the mean and median duration of breastfeeding by using the variable M5 for the year 2001, 2006, and 2011 for Nepal. However, the results are not matching with DHS Stat Compiler. here is the code for the year 2011 survey I am using as an example:

use "C:\NPKR60FL.dta", clear
gen sweight=v005/1000000

. summ m5 [aweight=sweight] if (m5<60),detail

months of breastfeeding
------------------------------------------------------------ -
Percentiles Smallest
1% 0 0
5% 2 0
10% 3 0 Obs 2,940
25% 8 0 Sum of Wgt. 2,974.7479

50% 17 Mean 19.53279
Largest Std. Dev. 13.49735
75% 29 58
90% 39 59 Variance 182.1784
95% 44 59 Skewness .5554638
99% 54 59 Kurtosis 2.516433


and the Stat compiler shows:
Median (33.7) and Mean(29.0)

I would really appreciate your response in this regard.

Thanks,
Muhammad
