Hi,

I have tried to match stata generates estimates with NFHS India reports.


Using PR file, the differences in both prevalence and number of children for all 3 anthropometric indicators is different for DHS 2019. The code is generating all other years of DHS correctly. Any way to generate prevalence using PR 2019-21 file correctly?

Using KR file, the prevalence rates for all 3 indicators is matching but the number of children in India report is different (DHS 2019-21). I just want to be sure why this is happening. Example given below


Using KR file for <60 months, number of children for WAZ

India report = 205,641
Generated= 205,551


Code used for KR file:

gen uw = .
replace uw = 1 if hw71<-200
replace uw = 0 if hw71 >-200 & hw71<9990

ta uw [iw=v005/1000000] if hw1 < 60


Please help
