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

I thought you were asking about something in the individual-level data files, and misinterpreted your question. Looking at figure 8.1 in the final report, the percentage receiving polio 1 was 78% and the percentage receiving polio 3 was 60%. The report is incorrect in saying that there was a dropout rate of 18%. It would have been correct to say that there was a decline of 18 percentage points. However, as you say, the dropout rate would be (78-60)/78 = 23%. Thank you for noting this. I will try to make sure that this type of mistake is avoided in future reports.
