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

You do not have a problem.

It is normal for the weighted and unweighted totals to differ for a sub-population. The weighted number can be either larger or smaller than the unweighted number, and sometimes by a much larger amount than you found. The weighted and unweighted totals will be the same for the total number of women in the IR file, but not necessarily for subsamples.
