Data relating to Caesarean births for the 1998 survey is missing. Please help confirm.

Secondly, when I cross tabulate proportion of births in public and private sector against those delivered by caesarean section, I get the same figures. Is there a problem in this? See below and please advise.

Place of delivery: Public sector Delivery by cesarean section

Country Survey Total Total
Kenya 2014 DHS 46 8.7
Kenya 2008-09 DHS 32.3 6.2
