Thanks for the reply. It was really helpful. Along the same lines, for 1998-99 round (NFHS 2), using the IR file (for calculating the anemia prevalence among women), I tried the following commands:
gen hg=s902/10
gen anemia= 1 if hg<11.0
replace anemia=0 if hg>=11.0
replace anemia=. if hg==.
tab anemia [aw=weight] **weight is calculated by dividing the women's weight variable by 1000000***

I used the same command with the variable s907 from the KR file to calculate the anemia prevalence among children and got the exact same results as given in the report. However, Once again, for anemia among women, my calculations do not match. Unfortunately, there isn't any other variable giving information on anemia or hemoglobin levels of the candidate.

Can you please look into the same.
