Following is a response from Senior DHS Specialist, Kerry MacQuarrie:

When trying to match numbers from a final report table, I find it helpful to systematically work through the following steps, since there are so many different ways one could "go wrong" in matching numbers. Could you work through these steps and identify where you first encounter a mismatch? That will help us help you fix your code.

Check that you have:
1. Correct data file: unit of analysis
2. Correct denominator: population at risk
3. Correct variables: find and understand your variables
4. Correct recoding special values
5. Correct weights
6. Correct tabulation row vs. column percent
