Dear User, a response from Data Processing Expert, Guillermo Rojas:

Since the decimals are implicit the adjustment for women should be:

(shwhba1c/1000 0.228)/0.9866

In the DHS report the table is for de-facto population HV103 = 1 with a complete individual interview HA65 = 1 and we are also excluding samples that were logged into the system more than 60 days or more. This information is available on request and the access key to that table is barcode variable SH274.

The same needs to be done for men, with the corresponding variables SHMHBA1C, HB65, and SH374.
