I am calculating the weighted number of children 6- 59 months tested for malaria by microscopy and the number of children positive for malaria by microscopy. The dataset I am using is NGPR81FL. I am using the exact guidelines as shown in the DHS Guide to Statistics:
Number of de facto children tested using microscopy (hv042 = 1 & hv103 = 1 & hc1 in 6:59 & hml32 in 0,1,6)
Number of de facto children tested using microscopy who are positive for malaria (hml32 = 1)

I am also taking into account the complex sample design which include strata, cluster and weights. I am coding in R and have attached my code sample to this post.

I am comparing my results with the 2021 Nigeria MIS Report, specifically pg. 147 (Table B.46), which does not match up. I am getting 205 for weighted number of children tested by microscopy, and 2 children who tested positive.

Has anyone else had the issue? I wonder if something is wrong with my code. Thank you very much.
