I'm getting different results from you:
. svy: mean hc70 if hc70<9996 & hv103==1, over(age_months)
(running mean on estimation sample)

Survey: Mean estimation

Number of strata =      19        Number of obs   =      2,336
Number of PSUs   =     397        Population size = 2,350.3319
                                  Design df       =        378

    _subpop_1: age_months = <6
    _subpop_2: age_months = 6-8
    _subpop_3: age_months = 9-11
    _subpop_4: age_months = 12-17
    _subpop_5: age_months = 18-23
    _subpop_6: age_months = 24-35
    _subpop_7: age_months = 36-47
    _subpop_8: age_months = 48-59

If you divide the results here by 100, you get the same results as in table 11.1 of the Uganda report. I think you must have a small mistake somewhere. Are you weighting with the correct variable?
