Hello - I prepared a Stata module (called tfr2) to compute fertility rates in a variety of ways. It was developed to be used mainly with DHS data, so the default options allow computing fertility rates like in DHS very easily (and the results - if you choose the default options - will be the same as in the DHS reports).

The module and the paper presenting it can be downloaded from the Demographi Research journal's website (http://www.demographic-research.org/volumes/vol28/38/).

Best regards,

Bruno
