Dear Team,

I have a quick question regarding the unmet need indicator variable (626a) and the syntax to calculate the new Unmet Need indicator. Why doesn't the result correspond to the one in stats compiler?

For example Benin (DHS 2006):
DHS Stats-compiler : 27.3
DHS def. 3 syntax : 22.1

Burkina Faso (DHS 2010) :
DHS Stats-compiler : 24.5
DHS def. 3 syntax & var 626a : 20.4

Many thanks in advance for your response !
