I have been trying to replicate the numbers in Table 11.8 (Nutritional status of women) shown in Pakistan DHS 2012-13 report but none of the things I have tried is working. I have tried different combinations where the base sample has excluded pregnant women (v213~=1) and women with a birth in the preceding 2 months (v222>2 & v222~=.).

I have also tried using the household member file. I excluded pregnant women (informed by ha54) but could not find any variable with information on women with a birth in the preceding two months, as hinted in the table. I also don't see a separate women's weight for elgible women or an all women factor in the household file. Merging the household and women's file is not working either.

I will appreaciate your guidance on the error of my ways.

Thanks in advance
