I am working with DHS 15-16 for India.

I have been trying to match the estimates presented in the table 10.0 of the final report. I have not been able to do so for Mother's nutritional status. I was given some code by another specialist on the forums. The code did generate the percentages with good accuracy but the total no. of obs. didn't match as presented in the final reports (Image attached) and the conditions mentioned in the report were not taken into account (Images attached). Can someone please mention how to correctly generate the figures ?

I have also attached an image of the reply.


Underweight - 45.9; 51103
Normal- 38.2; 128260
Overweight 27.1; 32318
