Mismatch in Ethiopia dataset [message #18198] Thu, 10 October 2019 12:13 Go to next message is currently offline

Hi dear concern,
I am conducting a study to see the association between mother's pregnancy interval and nutritional status (stunting, wasting, and underweight). However, the report about children's nutritional status is not matching with the dataset. I downloaded the dataset on child which has N-10641. The dataset has missing frequency for children's age (945) and missing frequency on stunting, wasting and underweight variable. After deleting those missing frequencies I am getting 7030 children, whereas the report is stating about 10375 children.
Can anyone please guide me what am I doing wrong.

Thank you.

To clarify further, I am using EDHS-2016. And I am referring to table 11.1 in the EDHS report. The number reported in the EDHS reoport does not match with the 2016 dataset. In the dataset there is missing frequency on age, stunting, wasting, and underweight varaibles.
I used the following variables.

Children's age-KIDAGEMO
Stunting -HWHAZWHO

Any help would be appreciated!
Thank you.
