Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:


I can't identify, in what you sent, what are the weighted and unweighted frequencies. However, I think you have done this correctly, using the DV weight (d005) and restricting to the children of women who were administered the DV module (v044==1).

Weighted and unweighted frequencies usually differ but are within about 10% or so of each other. They will only agree exactly for the overall total number of cases. Please tell me if you are seeing a discrepancy bigger than 10% or so.
