Hello,

I am working with a number of surveys and am currently working on duplicating the unmet need calculations using the provided stata code at https://dhsprogram.com/topics/Unmet-Need.cfm.

From my investigation, it appears that some DHS recode versions 6 and 7 seem to use different code than provided at the above link. It's clear, given the different category names, as well as differences in the numbers for infecund/menopasual and not sexually active numbers, that the provided stata file is not what was used to calculate these numbers (see attached photo for example; this is Zimbabwe 2015 data but there are a large number of surveys with the same problem).

/index.php?t=getfile&id=1466&private=0


Is there updated code that I could use to duplicate these calculations?
