Dear Team,

I want to calculate the sample size for my study and as the title above, I want to know how I can calculate the number of women with a
live birth in the two years preceding the survey and which is the appropriate table to use to match with in the final report of Malaria Indicator Survey 2014 - Malawi. Currently am using table 3.7 in Malawi MIS 2014 final report which gives me a total of 945 cases. Is this the right table to use? From my side consultations, I am also using the IR file, and to calculate women with a live birth in the last 2 years, I am computing valuables v008-b3 and then selecting those living with mother (b9=0) and finally selecting my new age valuable to <24 . But my figures are not matching with the 945 from the table, I suspect because I am not able to apply the sampling weights or am using the wrong valuables to calculate. Would someone please explain to me how I can calculate this figure are and what are the spss commands to use in order to calculate this percentage?

Regards,
