Hello
I need the revising version of unmet need for contraception (Bradley et al., 2012) in DHS 2010 Colombia. The revising variable is not in the database. Just the old version of unmet need for contraception is in the database.
How I can get the official revising unmet need for contraception in DHS 2010 Colombia?
Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks!

Please see the Unmet Need page on the web site, and in particular see the survey-specific code in Stata and SPSS at the bottom of the page for creating the revised unmet need variable for older surveys.

Dear DHS,
I used a general code for tabulating Unmet need for 2011 Nepal DHS. The result that it gives is 27.5 while in the report the percentage is 27.0. Is there anything I can do to get the correct result?

Hope to have your support.
Thanks

If you tab v626a as follows you will get 27.5 (combining the first two groups):
tab v626a [iw=v005/1000000] if v502==1
