I have found a number of additional calculations that affect the outcome that I have verified are different in v626a vs the provided stata code (I am only looking at Africa, so of course there could be more outside of Africa):

v626a = infecund/menopausal, unmet= unmet need for limiting, cases:
CM6 GA6 RW6 SN6 UG6 ZW6 
 16  11   4   1   6   6 

v626a = not married and no sex in last 30 days, unmet = unmet need for limiting, cases:
RW6 UG6 
 59  35 

v626a = infecund, menopausal, unmet = unmet need for spacing, cases:
BF6 CM6 ET6 GA6 RW6 SN6 UG6 ZW6 
  3  11   1  12   1   3   1   2 

v626a = not married and no sex in last 30 days, unmet = unmet need for spacing, cases:
RW6 UG6 
151 122 



If you could advise me on these as well, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
