Thanks for sharing this helpful tip! Using the POPWT variable to estimate absolute numbers is a great idea that I haven't tried before. Knowing the total number of people with certain characteristics will definitely help with planning and resources allocation.

I appreciate you linking to the user note that explains how POPWT is calculated. It's useful to understand that it relies on the household weights and UN population data. Knowing it has a similar margin of error to the household weights gives me confidence in using it.

Being able to extend the analysis beyond just proportions to real counts of people will open up new possibilities for the research I can conduct with DHS data. I look forward to the upcoming expansion of POPWT to women of childbearing age. Thanks again calendar 2024 with holidays for sharing this invaluable tip!https://www.typecalendar.com/printable-yearly-calendarhttps://www.typecalendar.com/household-budget.html
