I am trying to estimate the TFR using NFHS-1 (1992-93 data of India using tfr2 command in STATA.

I am getting the total TFR which is matching with the National report of NFHS-1, but when I am trying to estimate the TFR for Urban and Rural, the estimates are not matching with the report.

According to NFHS-1 report
TFR (Total)=3.39
TFR (Urban)= 2.70
TFR (Rural)=3.67


But according to my analysis, using the syntax

by v025, sort: tfr2 , awf( awfactt)
the estimate are diffrent

TFR (urban)= 3.09
TFR(Rural) =3.52


Please help me to estimate the correct TFR for Urban and Rural NFHS-1 data.
