I need Stata codes to compute parameters (Cm, Cc, Ci and Ca) of the Bongaarts' model using DHS data. Any help?
I would like to estimate the parameters (Cm, Cc, Ci and Ca) of the Bongaarts' model on proximate determinants of fertility using DHS data (TFR = TF x Cm x Cc x Ca x Ci).
Can someone share his stata codes with me? It would be greatly appreciated.

Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

I am attaching my "personal" Stata program for this purpose. It is not an "official" DHS program. I put it together in September 2019, after some email exchanges with John Bongaarts and Jocelyn Finlay. It requires age-specific fertility rates that must be prepared separately, as described in the program. It is set up for a Malawi survey. The attached Excel file, obtained via StatCompiler, is the source of the rates for the example. As I recall, the results are close to the published estimates but they may not be exact. You may be able to improve on the program.
