Hello,

If the survey was conducted amon ever-married women, you indeed need to use the all women factors. I think this is the case for all the surveys in Bangladesh, and most surveys in India, but I did not check.

The all women factors may not be available at the district level, so you will need to compute these all women factors for the household survey data. The method is explained the Guide to DHS Statistics ( https://dhsprogram.com/data/Guide-to-DHS-Statistics/index.cf m).

Best regards,
