Can anybody explain to me how these authors got these numbers? Source: Relationship between vaccination and
nutritional status in children: Analysis of recent. Demographic and Health Surveys

It says they use HR data sets BUT this doesn't make sense since there is no information on immunization or nutritional status in those data sets, so I'm using KR data sets instead (obviously this may be why I am getting different numbers, however I don't see how they used HR data sets in their analysis). The numbers im getting are not adding up, and are nowhere near what these authors got.

For example, for total children between ages 12-24 months in Angola, I am getting 5525 using their code (they use b8 variable), and 3069 using the b19 variable (which DHS program suggests).

Please help!

Thank you
