Dear Sir/ Dear Madam,
I have already registered a research project regarding children under age 5 who had diarrhea by using Myanmar DHS 2015-2016 data. In the Kid Recode (KR) file, there is one variable for diarrhea, h11. The number of under 5 children in KR stata file (4,596) is a little bit different to the number of children under age 5 (4,099) of table 10.7 in the DHS final report. Could you please see the two attached screenshots and provide me the possible explanation on the way of calculation that leads to 4099 of under 5 children for final report?
With best regards,
