Hi Bruno!

Thankyou for your timely response over my query.

I have executed as your suggested. There is problem with age specific rates here. None of figure matches with rates published in final report of Pakistan Demographic and Health survey 2006-07 (FR200 Table 4.3 page 44). Although TMFR deviates slightly by 0.1-0.2 births (It is 6.6 TMFR published vs 6.5 TMFR calculated from you suggested commends).

Also guide me whether should is use selection of v025==1 for urban and v025==2 for urban and rural samples respectively as below:-

tfr2 if (v025==1), entry(v509) awf(awfac_cons)
tfr2 if (v025==2), entry(v509) awf(awfac_cons)

Your expert suggestion is needed here.

Thankyou
Waqas Imran
