Dea DHS Team-
I am using NFHS-4 data to recreate Table 4.18 on Fertility Planning Status of India Report (2015-16). I used the following set of variables in different permutation and combination but couldn't create this table exactly what was published.

I used birth history data (IABR71FL.DTA) and variables
v005 (weight), v208, v213, v225, b10, v013 and bord.

I ended up with 275,648 cases however, India (NFHS-4) report states 281,067 cases.

Secondly, I used both types of weights, i.e., "aweight" and "iweight" while generating this table. No of cases in "aweight" is more than the number of cases if we use "iweight". This is opposite when we use previous rounds of NFHS datasets (like NFHS 1, 2, & 3) where number of cases are more when use "iweight".

Please help me - i) in providing the stata code for Table 4.18 and ii) explain why number of cases are more while using "aweight" in NFHS-4 compared to number of cases in "iweight" calculations, which is exactly opposite with other NFHS previous rounds.

Thanks for your help!
