You recently asked for assistance with a sample survey, but you say nothing about a sample in this thread. Since you used the word "census" (which means an attempted 100% count), may we assume that you have observations from all the households in the study population?

Dear All,
But my data set is not in the form to do a event history analysis.  I
have the details of all the usual residents in the household and
collected information on age, sex and other paritculars of the persons
present (surviving) at the time of survey. And for all the person who
dead after the reference period, i.e. after 2006, we have collected
age at death, sex of the person, month of death and year of death.
From this information, I want to calculate the death rate.

Is any one know how my data can be converted to do the analysis that
is suggested by Carlo?

Thanks and regards,

Oggetto: st: death rate calculation

Dear All,

I would like to calculate the death rate from a Household Census
conducted in the selected areas of a district. In the household we
have listed information on all the usual members in the household and
the number of usual residents died since January 2006. The census was
carried out in the year 2009. I just want to know how to calculate the
death rate using the stata. Presently, I am calculating the death rate
using excel after obtaining the total usual resident deaths during the
reference period and the total usual resident population (converting
the population enumerated into the person years lived during the
reference period using the population growth in the district).

Thanks and regards,

RAM
