I'm trying to regenerate the distribution of urban/rural areas by wealth index as found in the 2006 Nepal DHS report page 21 (

I am not getting the same numbers when I tab the place of residence and wealth index vars by row (tab var1 var2, row) in stata. Do I have to weight the dataset before? What recode file does one use for wealth index?

Finally, what is the difference between the wealth index and wealth index score variable?
