Dear all,

I downloaded the Stata Uganda 2006 data. I calculated the vaccination coverage rates for the antigens in the survey (BCG, DTP, etc.). I am not getting the same results as in the report. And my numbers are much lower than the official report. For example, in the file I downloaded there are 1,303 children not vaccinated for DTP3 over the 1,573 12-23 months children. There is clearly an issue.

Is it possible that the data is not correct in the file?

Note that I also did the same calculation for the 2011 Uganda DHS and I was able to reproduce the same coverage rates as in the report except for Polio. But I understands there adjustments going on for polio due to the Polio 0 dose.
