It seems this is related to the all woman factor, which should be used to inflate exposure when the survey is conducted among ever married women only. This is possible with the R package.
I do not see the all woman factor for the states in the data set, but you could compute them yourself (it is explained p 1.40 in the guide to DHS Statistics -
https://dhsprogram.com/pubs/pdf/DHSG1/Guide_to_DHS_Statistic s_DHS-7.pdf).
Best,
