I am trying to use the India data to calculate ASFR and TFR for different subpopulations and I need to create all woman factors for each one. Can someone help me with SAS or STATA code to do this with the HH surveys? I get the basic equation but am having difficulty with calculating these given that HH surveys contain information on several women in same HH.
