Hello again,

just wanted to add that i tried going through the same step by step process as described in the guide using 2016 Tanzania data. I have also imputed CMC where were not available (generate cmcdob = runiform(min_cmcdob,max_cmcdob) in STATA), although again i get results slightly different from the final report and statcompiler.

NAR primary school 76.5% (statcompiler); 73.4% (my own results)
NAR secondary school 22.8% (statcompiler); 24.7% (my own results).

Should I just be happy with the results I get, or is there any other tip to get closer to your results? Again, as i said in my last post, it would be very useful to know the absolute number of people of primary and secondary school age (the denominators basically) for both Malawi and Tanzania surveys please, so that i can have a reference to check if i am doing things well. I couldn't find it anywhere in the final report.

thank you!
