Hi,

I am trying to replicate the results for the Indicator "Children with ARI taken to a health facility" for Nepal DHS 2011 and 2016. I am getting the correct statistic for 2011 but a vastly different number for 2016. My code is posted below:

*symptoms of ari (%)
gen ari=0 if b5==1 & birth5== 1 // child is alive and born in the 5 years preceding the survey
replace ari=1 if b5==1 & h31b==1 & (h31c==1 | h31c==3)

gen ch_pneum_treatment= 0 if ari==1 & (b5==1 & birth5== 1)
foreach x in a b c d e f g h i j l m n o p q r t {
replace ch_pneum_treatment=1 if ari==1 & h32`x'==1
}

For 2016, I am getting a mean of 56.1 (which does not match the result in the STAT compiler (84.9). Kindly let me know if I am have not got the definition of health facility correct or if I am making another mistake.

Thanks
