Greetings,

Using the Malawi DHS 2015-2016 replicate table 12.10; use of IPTp by women during pregnancy, my number if below the final total from that table by 144 cases. Here is my spss syntax and I am using the IR file which I have been using for previous years datasets:


*// Weighting Variable

COMPUTE WGT=V005 / 1000000.
EXECUTE.

WEIGHT BY WGT.

*// AgeMonths

COMPUTE AgeMonths=V008 - B3$01.
EXECUTE.

DATASET COPY PreviousTwoYears.
DATASET ACTIVATE PreviousTwoYears.
FILTER OFF.
USE ALL.
SELECT IF (AgeMonths < 24).
EXECUTE.
DATASET ACTIVATE DataSet1.

DATASET ACTIVATE PreviousTwoYears.
FREQUENCIES VARIABLES=AgeMonths
/ORDER=ANALYSIS.

My frequency gives me 6549 as a total while the in table 12.10 the total is 6693.

Where I am wrong that I should get different totals for the % of women with a live birth in the two years preceding the survey?

Regards,
