Thank you for the swift response. It was a useful and helpful suggestion.

In an attempt to replicate the tables, I was faced with a some unsolved issues. After invoking the svyset command, I perfectly got all the results on table 1. A good replication.

But, I came across a number of problems with table 2.For instance the footnote of table 2 indicated that 2 cases had no information on religion and 4 cases of missing information on religion.When I use ([svy: tabulate hiv03 v130 , count format(%14.3gc]) the results were different: four(4) missing information on religion and 4 cases without religion.
Subsequently I got Islam = 7,457 and Christianity=304 when I invoke the svy command, with "if good" in which case "missing data" or "no religion" were excluded. Table 2 shows Islam=7,242 and Christianity =280 while mine were 7,457 and 304 respectively. A similar difference is occurred with residence. In table it is Urban= 4,441 and rural=3,098 while mine are 4,564 and 3,205 respectively. Where did I go wrong?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thank you.
