Hi Trevor and all,

I just wanted to give you an update on this email and let you know that I found the discrepancy and why I was unable to match the demand satisfied by modern methods estimates in StatCompiler for Niger 2006. In the v313 and v364 variables, women using LAM were classified as using traditional and NOT modern methods. This is the only survey (DHS IV or later) I looked at for which this was the case. However, in the demand satisfied by modern methods estimate, in order to match the estimate in StatCompiler, LAM needs to be counted in the numerator as a woman having her demand satisfied by a modern method.

I just thought that I would point this out. I'm glad to have resolved the difference!

Thank you!

Best,
Charlotte
