Dear DHS Experts,
I am using the Individual (women) 2016 Ethiopian DHS data set to replicate women's place of delivery for given table 9.8 place of delivery in the final EDHS 2016 report. I tried to categorize into three categories for women who had live births in the 5 years before the survey by place of delivery. I used stat version 15 using the following command to find the percentage share of place of delivery after categorize: tab place of delivery [iweight = wgt] and found the result below:
Place of delivery
Frequency Percent Valid Percent Cumulative Percent
Valid Home delivery 5064.79275 66.78 66.1 66.78
Health facility delivery 2405.0435 31.71 31.71 98.49
Other 114.794832 1.51 1.51 100.0
Total 7584.631 100.0 100.0 100.0
My concern will be:
Percentage delivered in health facility on the report is 26.2 which is 31.7, home delivery is 72.6 which is 66.8, and other is 1.2 which is 1.5 as in the above table.
I just need your experts help in this calculation mismatch for the final report. Thank you so much in advance for your support.
Kind regards
