Dear Sir/Madam,
I am having having difficulties replicating table 10.17 of the India NFHS-4, 2015-16 report(percentage given vitamin a supplements in the last 6 months).

I have used following conditions to get the reported figures:

compute xy=(v008-b3).
sel if (xy>=6 and xy<=59 and b5=1).
compute rweight=(v005/1000000).
weight by rweight.

if (h33m<13 & h33m>0) month = h33m.
if (h33y>2009 & h33y<2017) year=h33y.
compute vacccmc = (year - 1900)*12 + month.
compute last6 = v008 - vacccmc.
if (last6<7) lastva = 1.
if (b5=1) vita=0.
if (h34=1) vita=1.
if (lastva = 1) vita=1.
fre vita.

The weighted percentage of vitamin a supplementation that i got for all children aged 6-59 months is different from what was reported in the India NFHS-4 2015-16 report.
