I am looking at DPT coverage using Births Recode of DHS Zambia 2007.
The final report says very high coverage. For example, 92.3% of children aged 12 and 23 months received the first dose of DPT (Table 10.2).
But when I tabulate variable "h3" (DPT1), about 73.93% of children aged 12 and 23 months did not receive DPT1.
I attached the table and my commands. I did not use weights.
Are there errors in the data or am I doing something wrong?

use zmbr51fl.dta,clear
gen hypage=(v008-b3)/12
keep if hypage>=1 & hypage<2
tab h3

received dpt 1 | Freq. Percent Cum.
---------------------+-----------------------------------
no | 936 73.93 73.93
vacc. date on card | 106 8.37 82.31
reported by mother | 217 17.14 99.45
vacc. marked on card | 6 0.47 99.92
9 | 1 0.08 100.00
---------------------+-----------------------------------
Total | 1,266 100.00
