I am currently trying to investigate the infecund population for various West African countries

I have based my code for infecund women (Burkina Faso 2010) on the Stata code provided on this web page http://www.measuredhs.com/topics/Unmet-Need.cfm.

When running the part of the code for infecund women (Burkina Faso 2010) I can't seem to get the same number of infecund women when comparing the variables listing infecundability (v623, v624, v625, v626). I was wondering if it was possible to get hold of the coding for these variables to see what the differences are? I understand that contraceptive users are not in the infecund category in V624 and v626 but they do not seem to account for the missing women in my code.

Which is the best indicator for the level of infecund or menopausal women?
