Dear Mr/Ms.,
I am using the following stata codes to retrieve the Stunting figures by province in Burundi (DHS2010).
********************************
gen weight = v005/1000000
tab hw70 if hw70>9990,m nolabel
gen HAZscore=hw70
replace HAZscore=. if HAZ>=9996
gen stunted=.
replace stunted=0 if HAZscore ~=.
replace stunted=1 if HAZscore <-200
gen eligch = 0
replace eligch = 1 if v135==1 (control for usual resid.)
tab province stunted [iw=weight] if eligch==1, row
************************************************
Unfortunately, I am getting the total number of under five (3528) different form the one in the formal DHS report (3590).
Do I have to control another element? I get also 57.92 % of stunted children under-5 instead 57.7% from the report.
Many thanks for your help.
Regards,
Tharcisse
