Following is a response from DHS staff member, Tom Pullum:

We apologize for the delay in this reply. We cannot go through your code in detail. I can see a problem at the beginning, with "gen age=v008-b3" and "keep if age<6 & b5==1". In these files, age in months should be defined by hw1. It does not have to be recalculated. "Born in the last two years and living" would be "keep if hw1<24 & b5==1". I assume that the rest of the code is taken correctly from the Guide to DHS Statistics or the relevant codeshare program.
