The results for the percentage of Fever cases in the 2016 Uganda DHS report seem to have not considered don't know as a missing given the analysis guideline.

With don't know as part of the denominator, the procedure I used is as follows,

. g iw=v005/1000000

. g h22_f=h22==1

. tab h22_f [iw=iw] if b5==1 & b19<60 with give 33.28% of fever as reported in the DHS report

With don't know considered as missing; the fever percentage is 33.96%

I would like to know which procedure I should follow.
