Hello, I am trying to replicate the Ghana_edu.do calculations as illustrated in do file uploaded by K. MacQuarrie in 2013, but for Malawi 2015-16.

I am interested in Secondary attendance rate, and therefore, following indications from the final report, I am restricting to age range 14-17.

tab hv122 if inrange(hv105,14,17) [iw=wgt]

I get 15.4% (freq. 1,661.6441), instead of 17.7% (statcompiler) 17.4% (report - Table 2.13 School attendance ratios).

Any idea on what am i doing wrong, please? Thanks for your time!
