Good day

I am trying to decompose ASFR for ages 15-19 years,and one of the steps is to calculate the national ASFR from proportion of adolescents aged 15-19 years and the disaggregated ASFR e.g. urban/rural (v025). Unfortunately the national ASFR I get does not add up to the national one obtained from using tfr2, the same one from the report,

I use tabexp to get cases (women) for (1) current ages 15-19 using:
tabexp if v012 <=19 & v025 ==1
tabexp if v012 <=19 & v025 ==2

and(2)including individuals currently aged 20-24 and contributed to the Person Years using:
tabexp v025, minage(15) maxage(19)

I still do not get consistent results.

Kind regards;

Mercy
