Hi
I was using the dataset of DHS 2014 of Bangladesh for a paper in my university. I already took permission of that. I was looking also at the published Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey 2014 by the USAID. Wne I looked into the table 7.2 (page number 75) of the published report/book, I found that the number of respondents living in urban area was 4,709 and 12,149 in rural area. But when I was analyzing the dataset (in stata) BDIR70FL.DTA, I found the number was mismatch (6,1666 in urban and 11,693 in rural). Can you please help me to explain this?
Regards,
Kibria
