Thank You very much for the prompt response.

I could not realize that I have to use the urban-rural factor variable to estimate.

I have one more query. Actually I have to understand the change in TFR from NFHS-1 to NFHS-3 , which is "decomposed into two components: changes in nuptiality (age-specific proportions of currently married) and changes in marital fertility (age-specific marital fertility rates)" (Retherford and Thapa, 2004: 725), using age-specific fertility rates, the proportion of currently married by 5-year age group and age-specific marital birth rate.

Please suggest to me what STATA command I should use to decompose TFR and how ?
