ICDS pregnancy benefits coverage_ Mismatch with State reports [message #18193] Wed, 09 October 2019 08:10

I want to estimate the percentage of mothers who got any benefits under ICDS during their pregnancy (s562) but there are differences that are occurring in sample size with state nfhs 4 reports.

I have used filters such as children below 6yrs and children who are alive. However while for some states like Assam, I am getting exact estimates with state NFHS 4 reports, for others states (Kerela, Bihar) there are differences in both sample size and estimate.. Note, the sample size differences are between 5-20 observations of mothers of 0-71m children which results in 1-3 percentage point differences in estimates. I want to know if I have to generate a mother variable (or do a merge with v003) in BR file to get exact estimates across any state in India. There is no way to generate mothers who had a pregnancy ever. Please help.
