I'd like to do differential analysis of Net School Attendance Rates on Haiti from the 1995, 2000, 2006, and 2012 data sets (I'm specifically using HTPR31FL.DTA, HTPR42FL.dta, HTPR52FL.DTA, HTPR61FL.DTA). However, I am calculating very different values even at the national level than I get when I use the STATcompiler or when looking at the respective reports.

See attached for a screen shot from STATcompiler.

I've looked over the forum and found this posting which deals with a similar issue ( mp;), but when I run the code provided there I am still not able to reproduce the numbers STATcompiler is reporting. The greatest divergence is in 2006 where I'm getting about 80% and STATcompiler is reporting about 50%.

The most straightforward code I'm running is in STATA:

gen wgt=hv005/1000000
tab hv121 if inrange(hv105,5,12) [iw=wgt]

Any assistance would be much appreciated! I want to make sure I'm looking at the right specification before digging down into lower administrative levels.
