Dear all,

I want to estimate measles immunization coverage using DHS Jordan 2017 data and the following code:

gen vmsl=.
replace vmsl=0 if inrange(b19,12,23) & b5==1
egen _vmsl=anymatch(h9), v(1/3)
recode vmsl (0=1) if _vmsl == 1

I found 1689 alive children aged 12-23 months, however, my estimate is 80.5% (Table 10.3 presents 87.9% for either source).
Using the same code for children aged 24-35 months I found the same 89% as presented on the report.

I can not see where is the mistake.

Thank you in advance for your help!
