Dear Bruno

A follow-up question-

How can one decompose ASFR given the following:
1. That the rate refers to mid-point of the 3 years before the survey but all the potential independent variables' reference is at the time of the survey
2. That the denominator here is the PY(exposure) not the total population -although the total cases (number of women) are available using tfr2 but I could not get the numbers disaggregated for each variable.

Your help will be much appreciated.

Kind regards;

Mercy
