i used the following STATA commands to get the results of nutritional status among women using Nepal DHS 2011 data.

clear all
set more off
use "C:\dhs\Nepal 2011\individual recode\NPIR60FL.DTA", clear
* generate sampling weight
g wgt=v005/1000000

** Currently pregnancy
tab v213
** height/weight measured
tab v447

tab v445 if v447==0
gen bmi=v445/100 if v447==0

gen bmic=1 if bmi<18.5
replace bmic=2 if bmi>=18.5 & bmi<25
replace bmic=3 if bmi>=25 & bmi<30
replace bmic=4 if bmi>=30 & bmi<50
label define bmic 1"Underweight" 2"Normal" 3"Overweight" 4"Obese"
label values bmic bmic

tab bmic if v213==0 & v447==0 [iw=wgt]
however, the result is not same as the NDHS report. i found higher frequency (5851) than that reported in the NDHS report (5800) (page no-183). Can anybody help me to get the exact result as reported in the NDHS 2011 report?
