Hi,

I want to do cross tabulations of anthropometry indicators (stunting, wasting, underwt) for districts of UP according to caste, tribe, gender. The same problem persists for child anemia estimates. The SPSS output (after using state weights) is different from the prevalence reported in district factsheets of NFHS 4. Please note, I have used both KR and PR recode file (HW 70-72, HC70-72) to check the data. This is problematic since other variables are generating same estimates as given in factsheets. What should I do?


Please note, the PR recode is currently removed from DHS website. Is there a new file for this data? or do I have to merge certain recode files.

Someone is looking into your post. However, we need you to be more specific. Please give us the name of a specific fact sheet (the state), the number of the indicator, the numerical value on the fact sheet, and the numerical value you are getting.

We will then try to figure out why there is a difference.
