Dear DHS,

I am working with file KEIR72FL and I see calendar data (vcal_1 and vcal_2) was only collected for 47% of women. Why is that? This means not every birth is recorded on vcal_1 so I cannot compute TFR from it?

Also, 52% of births in the previous 36 months to the date of interview do not include information on M10 nor V367. If I want to compute the proportion of unwanted pregnancies, should I reweight the sample? Please, help me out!

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

David A. Sanchez P.
