Hello

I am trying to reconcile the number of observations in the Namibia HIV dataset with the figures reported in the report. On page 209, the report shows that men and women aged 15-64 who were tested and interviewed were around 8858. However in the HIV dataset I downloaded there are 9309 observations.

Can you kindly explain why there is this discrepancy?

Regards
Nashallan

Dear User,
Are you using the weight variable?
