Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

I know you would like to look at trends, but I can't help much with a survey that's so old.

Your code looks ok to me, except that the threshold for "any anemia" for women is currently 12, and the next threshold down is 10. You have 11. Is that a typo? Or was 11 the threshold then? It's possible that you are not getting a match because of some adjustment related to smoking or altitude or pregnancy. In the latest survey, residency is de facto. Maybe it was de jure in that old table (as well as de facto, since the woman has to be present to give the blood sample).

These are the kinds of things I would check for if I had the time.
