Hello,

We are trying to replicate the following results for India 2019 DHS:
"More than one-third of households (36%) in India have at least one mosquito net, while 8 percent have at least one Insecticide Treated Mosquito Net (ITN)."

Instead of 8%, we get 25.4% of households that have at least one ITN. We included categories 11 to 26 from hml7 variables in the household dataset as ITNs (to be clear, by ITN I mean LLIN). If we include only categories 11 to 19 (what works for most DHS surveys), we get 7.9%.

We had the same issue with Malawi 2015, but for ITNs for children and pregnant women. ITNs are categories 11 to 26 according to question 131 of the household questionnaire, but we can only match published results using categories 11 to 19.

I would appreciate some guidance.

Thank you in advance,

Thiago Melo

Following is a response from DHS Lead Malaria Research Analyst, Cameron Taylor:

Dear Thiago
Thank you for your question. I am a little unclear how you are getting your results, however, below is code for how to replicate the data that is in Table 2.32 of the India 2019-21 final report using Stata. This might also help you with the issues you are having replicating the data in the Malawi report. This code is also on our Github page https://github.com/DHSProgram/DHS-Indicators-Stata/tree/mast er/Chap12_ML

use "IAHR7AFL.DTA", clear
gen wt=hv005/1000000

//Household mosquito net ownership
gen ml_mosquitonet=0
replace ml_mosquitonet=1 if hv227==1
lab var ml_mosquitonet "Household owns at least one mosquito net"

//Household ITN ownership
gen ml_itnhh=0
forvalues x=1/7 {
replace ml_itnhh=1 if hml10_`x'==1
}
lab var ml_itnhh "Household owns at least one ITN"

//Percentage of households with at least one mosquito net
tab ml_mosquitonet [iw=wt]

//Percentage of households with at least one ITN
tab ml_itnhh [iw=wt]
