Following is a response from DHS Technical Specialist, Rukundo Benedict:

Dear User,

I suspect the issue may have to do with the age calculation. For age in the 2015-16 Malawi DHS, you should use the b19 variable as follows:

* keep only children less than 2 years -->N.B.from 2016 surveys onwards use the b19 variable for age* 
gen age=b19
keep if age<24
* keep last born children
keep if bidx==1
ta age [iw=wgt]

The above should select the correct sample and assuming your other code is correct, you will match the report.
