I have used following SPSS code to calculate the rate of total unmet need for family planning from the 2019/21 survey data of India. But my result does not match with that published in the report. The report shows that the rate of total unmet need is 9.4%. Bu my one is different. Can anyone please give me the SPSS code to find the rate that will match with the value published in the report. Thanks in advance

*Finding the women who were currently married or sexually active

COMPUTE marr_active=0.
IF v502 = 1 marr_active=1.
IF (v502 ~= 1 & v528 <= 30) marr_active=1.
VARIABLE LABELS marr_active 'Currently married or sexually active (had sex within last 30 days)'.
VALUE LABELS marr_active 1 'Yes' 0 'No'.
EXECUTE.

*Computing and applying weights
compute wgt=v005/1000000.
weight by wgt.

*I calculated the no. of women who had unmet need for spacing and limiting from the following frequencies

FREQUENCIES VARIABLES=V626A
/ORDER=ANALYSIS.

*I calculated the no. of women who had unmet need for spacing and limiting from the following frequencies

FREQUENCIES VARIABLES=marr_active
/ORDER=ANALYSIS.

* Calculation of the percentage of had unmet need for family planning
I divided the weighted no. of women had unmet need (derived by adding all had unmet need for limiting and spacing) calculated from readily available V626A (=1 & 2) by the weighted no. of currently married or sexually active women (marr_active=1).
