|Exact stunting rate with exact observation number [message #15080]

In order to find the stunting rate among children under age 5 using BDHS 14 data, I have used the following Stata command.
I used this command both in KR & PR dataset. But the total observation number is not exactly matching with the BDHS-14 report.
Prevalence of Stunting in 2014 (Children under age 5)
Using KR file, 36.24 % (N = 6965)
Using PR file, 36.09 % (N = 7256)
From BDHS'14 Report
36.1 % (N = 7318)
Here, my question is, how can I obtain the same prevalence rate and same observation for calculating child stunting rate?
Where is my mistakes, that I've made in my Stata command?
I have to get the exact observations and the exact stunting rate.
Stata command for stunting (just for the KR file)
svyset psu [pw=sampwt], strata (strata)
//child stunting calculation
tab hw70 if hw70>9990,m
tab hw70 if hw70>9990, m nolabel
replace HAZ=. if HAZ>=9996
replace stunted=0 if HAZ~=.
replace stunted=1 if HAZ<-200
svy: tab stunted
