Good day,

I am trying to match the total for Table 20.1 in the SADHS report https://dhsprogram.com/pubs/pdf/FR337/FR337.pdf, but I cannot seem to get the total as is in the report. I am getting 5874 instead of 5865.

What could be causing this?

I have added an example of my Stata code below.


***********


* THE DV FILE *
cls
clear all
set matsize 800
set mem 1g
set maxvar 32767
cd "C:\Users\..."
use "ZADV71FL", clear
set more off

** ========================================================================== **

keep if v044==1

** ========================================================================== **

*REMOVE MISSING CASES FROM THE FIRST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE INDICATOR IN THE FILE
keep if d101a<.

gen in_DV=1
sort v001 v002 v003

save "ZAtemp.dta", replace

** ========================================================================== **
** ========================================================================== **

* THE IR FILE *
cls
clear all
set matsize 800
set mem 1g
set maxvar 32767
cd "C:\Users\***"
use "ZAIR71FL", clear
set more off

** ========================================================================== **
** ========================================================================== **

*remove the same missing values
keep if d101a<.

gen in_IR=1
sort v001 v002 v003

** ========================================================================== **
** ========================================================================== **

* MERGE *

merge 1:1 v001 v002 v003 using ZAtemp.dta
tab _merge

* this is to see which women are coming from each file
tab in_DV in_IR,m

** ========================================================================== **

keep if v044==1

** ========================================================================== **

** SURVEY SET
gen weight=d005/1000000
gen psu =    v021
gen strata = v023
svyset psu [pw = weight], strata(strata) singleunit(centered)

** ========================================================================== **

** PHYSICAL VIOLENCE **
//ANY PARTNER VIOLENCE
//ever
gen dv_prtnr_phy = 0 if v044==1 & v502>0
foreach x in a b c d e f g j {
replace dv_prtnr_phy = 1 if d105`x'>0 & d105`x'<=3
			}
label val dv_prtnr_phy yesno
label var dv_prtnr_phy	"Any physical violence by partner"

//EXPERIENCED PHYSICAL VIOLENCE BY ANY PARTNER IN THE 12 MONTHS BEFORE SURVEY
//ever
gen dv_aprtnr_phy = 0 if v044==1 & v502>0
replace dv_aprtnr_phy = 1 if (dv_prtnr_phy==1 | (d130a>0 & d130a<=3))
label val dv_aprtnr_phy yesno
label var dv_aprtnr_phy "Experienced physical violence by any partner"
		
** ========================================================================== **

** CHECK ** 
count

svy: tab v025, count format(%9.0f) miss //5874 instead of 5865

************************

svy: tab v190 dv_aprtnr_phy, count format(%9.0f) miss
svy: tab v190 dv_aprtnr_phy, percent format(%9.1f) miss row

** ========================================================================== **

Dear Dr. Tsawe,

We received a similar question from another user and provided a response here ( https://userforum.dhsprogram.com/index.php?t=rview&goto= 21971#page_top).

I was also not able to match the denominator (off by 9 cases). However, this is a minor discrepancy, which should not affect any interpretations of the tables.

Thank you.

Best,
