I am trying to calculate and test my results in calculating fertility desire by number of living children ( table 5.1) in DHS 2014 using weight , but the result is different. the calculated total 15-49 is 21762 while in DHS is 20460 . the percentage in each number of living children is different.

Please guide me how to calculate it using STATA or SPSS
