Dear DHS forum,
I am using Pakistan DHS 2017-2018.I used the command below in Stata using stata file PKIR71FL, but the output does not match the report. Can anyone please help me to calculate teenage pregnancy in Pakistan?

The command I used was:
gen teenmom= 0 if v013==1
replace teenmom= 1 if (v213==1|bidx_01==1)& v013==1

According to DHS report 2017-2018, the total women sample for age group 15-19 is 4,398 whereas the data file PKIR71FL has got a sample of 728 for age group 15-19 years.

Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:
The main issue here is that this survey was limited to ever-married women. The actual number of women age 15-19 in the household survey (weighted with hv005) is about 4398, but only 728 of them (unweighted) were married and were interviewed. If you look at the Guide to DHS Statistics, it describes the procedure to inflate the sample of ever-married women to all women with all-women factors. The procedure involves an assumption that never-married women had no births or pregnancies.
