I'm working on estimating several indicators using the DHS including age-specific fertility rates; total fertility rates. I've been using the Guide to DHS Statistics which has been really helpful. However, I've been unable to match the indicators I'm generating with the indicators in the DHS reports. My numbers are very close but not the same.

Do you have any resources on how to calculate these indicators particularly in Stata? Or any advice on how to use the weights for this data?
