I am currently working with the Zambia 2013-14 individual recode file (which I downloaded 2 weeks ago). When trying to recreate Tables 13.1 and 13.2.1 my results are ~.5% off the published results due to the fact that there is a difference of 174 cases (which in my file appear as missing). Are the missing cases included as "no" in the variables (v754cp,v754dp,v754bp, v756 etc.) or has the file been updated since the results were published and my results are correct?

(I have used svyset v021 [iw=wgt], strata(v022) singleunit(certainty) before running tabs)

As the missing cases are cases where the women has never heard of AIDS (tab them by v751 to check), we treat those missing cases as not knowing those ways of avoiding AIDS.
