Dear Gonzalo Barreix,

I can answer your question for Miriam, as I wrote the code for POPWT.

For expanding children under 5 in the Mozambique MIS 2018 survey, you will want to use the first of the two methods you mentioned.

Specifically, using the MIS 2018 Mozambique KR file compute:

KTWT= (v005/(sum of 2018 under age 5 in sample))*(2018 under age 5 Mozambique population)

I hope this helps! Please respond here if you have any further questions
