I am pretty new at analysing ASFR and have used standardised packages such as TFR2 from Stata and DHS.rates in R to replicate results that was obtained in the Ghana Maternal Health Survey report. The results that i obtain are inconsistent with what is contained in the report. For example

Results from report by residence
Agegrp Urban Rural Total
15-19 57 95 75

Results Obtained
Agrp. Urban Rural Total
15-19 28 37 32

I hope to have the support to help me figure out why I am not having consistent results. Thank you in advance.
