Hello Amel,

For gross attendance ratio please read the Guide to DHS Statistics to understand how this indicator is calculated in DHS x.htm#t=School_Attendance_Ratios.htm

The code for this indicator and other school attendance ratios can be found on our code library on GitHub for Chapter 2 in the Stata do file : er/Chap02_PH

Would need to use the PR file and adjust your paths.

Please read the readme file on the main page of our GitHub site ( and the main file for Chapter 2 before trying to run any code.

Thank you.
