Dear DHS team,

I am looking at the 2.9.1 Disability by Domain and age. It says: Results, based on 33,155 persons, are presented in Table 2.14 for the de facto household population age 5 and older (Sample: De facto household population age 5 or above).

I use the household member dataset ("ZAPR71FL") with these code:

tab hdis2 if (hv105>4 & hv105<98) & hv103==1 or
tab hdis2 if (hv105>4 & hv105<98) & hv103==1 [iw= hv005/1000000]

But I cannot get the 33,155 persons. Could you please let me know how I can get the valid number (33,155 persons) ?

Thank you.

Dear User, a response from Dr. Shireen Assaf:

Your code is correct except for one minor condition. As seen in table 2.14, those who responded "don't know" for their age are included in the denominator. So the following code will give you the 33,155 total. You just needed to remove hv105<98 .

tab hdis2 if hv105>4 & hv103==1 [iw= hv005/1000000]

Thank you.

Shireen Assaf
