Hi,
I am using the NFHS-4 data to calculate the TFR at the state and district levels.
So, I used the following syntax to calculate it for the state level:

clear
use "C:\Users\DELL\Dropbox\NFHS-4\IAIR74FL.DTA"

putexcel set "C:\Users\DELL\Dropbox\NFHS-4\tfr2_state_new.xls", replace
putexcel A1=("State") B1=("TFR") C1=("S.E.")

levelsof v024, local(levels)

local i=1
foreach d of local levels {
tfr2 if v024==`d', len(5) norates
local i=`i'+1
putexcel A`i'="`d'" B`i'=_b[TFR] C`i'=_se[TFR]
}

My results for state-wise TFR are coming different than the NFHS-4 report.
How can I improve my results?
I used a similar syntax to calculate TFR at the district level, and I am not sure how reliable my results are. Is there a different way I can calculate the TFR at the district level?
Thank You.
