Hello,

Fertility rates in DHS reports are usually computed for the 3 years preceding the survey.

you should use the option len(3) instead of len(5). I did a quick comparison for a few sates, and my results match the figures in the report in the states I checked.

tfr2 if v024==`d', len(3) norates

Best regards.
