Following is a response from Senior DHS Stata Specialist, Tom Pullum:


I don't understand your question. First, what is the meaning of "working on estimating several indicators using the total fertility rates"? How can the estimation of indicators "use" the TFR? Second, what is the meaning of "changing by cohort for every age group"? The TFR is a period-specific summary measure of fertility across all age groups. It is not age-specific, and DHS surveys are not well-suited to calculating the comparable measure of completed fertility for cohorts of women (a cohort is a group of women born at the same time, e.g. born in 1960-64). Please clarify your question.
