Hi Liz,

I used variable H14, but my estimate does not match the estimates in the report in Table 10.7. The estimate for homemade fluids is 50.5% in the DHS 2008-09 report and 57.3% in the DHS 2014 report.

I used the following Stata codes to estimate use of homemade fluids and got 25.9% and 28.7% using the DHS 2008-09 and DHS 2014 child recode files, respectively.

gen weight=v005/1000
svyset v021 [pw=weight], strata(v022)
svy : proportion h14

Could you elaborate on how the homemade fluids estimates were calculated in the DHS reports or what the definition of homemade fluid is in the report?
