Please provide more details, including the year of the survey, the name of the file you are using, and the table you are referencing.

It is Ethiopian 2016 DHS survey. I referenced the background characteristics of women such as table 3.1, 3.2.1, 3.3.1, and 3.6.1

Are you weighting the data?

DHS sample weights are used in almost every tabulation in DHS final reports. The few unweighted tables are clearly labeled. Sample weights are described fully in the Guide to DHS Statistics . The weights are used in all analyses to make sample data representative of the entire population. There are different DHS weights for different sample selections/units of analysis, as listed below. Analysts need to divide the sampling weight they are using by 1,000,000.

Unit of analysis: Variable
Households: hv005
Household members: hv005
Women or children: v005
Men: mv005
Domestic Violence: d005
HIV test results: hiv05

As mentioned in the previous response, please weight the data.

Example (SPSS):

COMPUTE WGT = V005/1000000.
WEIGHT by WGT.
