Hello all

Can some please assist me with a code to derive the variable "age-mixing in sexual partnerships (young women age 15-19, any partner in the last 12 months)". I am using DHS data from Lesotho (2014), Namibia (2013), and South Africa (2016). Any assistance will be appreciated.

These are the figures from STATcompiler:
Lesotho 2014 DHS = 7.9
Namibia 2013 DHS = 5.7
South Africa 2016 DHS = 5.9

Following is a response from DHS staff member Tom Pullum:

For a question like this, forum users should say exactly where they saw the term. On STATcompiler I see "Age difference between man and woman". If you are referring to a table in a final report, please give the table number. Have you tried to match a number on STATcompiler or in a report, and you are not able to match it?
