Dear all,

We are trying to reproduce the % of under-5 children with a birth registration for Senegal 2015 (Table 15.1 in the country report).
We are using the following codes, which we already used for other surveys, to calculate the results:

** PR dataset **
gen breg = .
replace breg = 0 if inrange(hv105,0,4) & hv102==1
recode breg (0=1) if inrange(hv140,1,2)
svyset hv021 [pweight=hv005]
svy: prop breg

. svy: prop breg
(running proportion on estimation sample)

Survey: Proportion estimation

Number of strata = 1 Number of obs = 7087
Number of PSUs = 214 Population size = 6279670112
Design df = 213

------------------------------------------------------------ --
| Linearized
| Proportion Std. Err. [95% Conf. Interval]
-------------+---------------------------------------------- --
breg |
0 | .3173947 .0209918 .2775279 .3601337
1 | .6826053 .0209918 .6398663 .7224721
------------------------------------------------------------ --

We found an estimate of 68.3% and a weighted sample size of 6,280, however the results in the report are 80.4% and sample size the same (6,280).

Was the estimated % from the report calculated from another dataset or we are missing something in the code?

Thank you!

Best regards,
Fernanda

Thanks we are reviewing this, but it looks to me that there was a mistake in the report for this table, and I think your results are correct.
