I have been trying to calculate the rate of stunting and wasting as per age categories from the NFHS 4 data set for India using Stata 15.1 .I am using the children re-code data set. The sequence i am using is as follows:

gen weight = v005/1000000
gen haz = hw70/100
svyset [pweights = weight], psu(v001) strata(v022)
svy: tab haz

the estimate gives the number of cases as 250002 and weighted cases as 215489

this is not in line with the unweighted and weighted case of 232,400 and 219,760 mentioned in the national report

Kindly help me in understanding what exactly am i missing here.
