Hello,

tfr2 computes rates for the 3 preceding years by default.

Just typing tfr2 will thus compute the rates for the three years preceding the survey

Actually, it is a shortcut for:

tfr2 [pw=v005], dates(v008) bvar(b3*) wb(v011) len(3) ageg(5) awf(awfactt)

In Pakistan, you should be careful to use the correct all-women factors for sub-populations.

For instance, to compute rates for rural and urban areas, you can use the following command

by v025, sort: tfr2, awf(awfactu)

If you want to compute these rates for a 5- year period, it would become

by v025, sort: tfr2, len(5) awf(awfactu)

Best, Bruno
