I want to replicate the Table 10.10 Minimum acceptable diet Percentage of youngest children age 6-23 months living with their mother who are fed a minimum acceptable diet based on breastfeeding status, number of food groups, and times they were fed during the day or night preceding the interview, according to background characteristics, India, 2019-21. All things like MAD, MDD and MMF. I have tried with the Github code but unable to get the exact values. Please help me with the syntax.

Following is a response from DHS staff member Tom Pullum:

This is a difficult table. If the GitHub program does not match the table, we may not be able to help. Looking at the last row of this table, I see that the n is 62,253, and the last four percentages are 94.2%, 23.0%, 35.1%, and 11.0%. What do you get for that n and those percentages?

Following is a response from DHS staff member Tom Pullum:

If you can match the table with the GitHub code, except for some small deviations, it's unlikely that we (the analysis team at DHS) could do any better. We often get small deviations for the NFHS-4 and NFHS-5 tables.
