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

You can probably get all the indicators you want from STATcompiler, without re-calculating them from the individual-level data files. All of the age-specific fertility rates, for example, are available there. You would assign a "reference date" to each indicator, using the mean date of interview and then going back 2.5 years for an estimate that applies to the five years before the survey, etc. You could smooth the estimates with a statistical procedure or just take them exactly as they appear in STATcompiler.

You are probably going back too far in time with the asfr for 15-19. My advice would be to go back no more than ten years before the first survey.
