Hi, there

I am looking for antibiotic use for ARI in the Bangladesh DHS 2014 Data and trying to understand reported ( Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey 2014; page 147 ) percentage of children under age 5 with symptoms of ARI who received antibiotics. I am using BDKR70FL.DTA . For calculation, i am using the following code in STATA
gen antibio=0 if ari==1
replace antibio=1 if ari==1 & (s538g==1 | s538h==1 |s538i==1 |s538j==1 |s538k==1 | s538l==1 |s538m==1 )

The problem is that my calculated percentage is lower than the reported percentage (
Is there anyone who help me to clarify this issue
