Dear STATA crowd,

I wish to analyze the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) data on
children under five.

I have set up my analysis as follows, using at Tanzania DHS 2010 as a
starting point. But I have two questions:

1. Why do I have 8,023 cases not the 8,081 that the report (the report
and dataset are available at
http://www.measuredhs.com/what-we-do/survey/survey-display-345.cfm)
says exit?

2. How do I restrict the analysis to V465, which was a question asked
only of respondents with a youngest child under five living with them?

Maybe questions, sorry, but my STATA mind needs jogging!

Thanks!

French



set mem 450m



set matsize 800



use TZKR62DT/TZKR62FL.DTA



*v022 is sample stratum number

gen stratid = v022



*v021 is PSU

gen psu = v021



*v005 is sample weight

gen weight = v005/1000000



svyset psu [pw=weight], strata(stratid)



*Just to compare totals. Should get 8,081 for Tanzania DHS 2010 not 8,023!

tab stratid



*keep if complete response

keep if v015==1



*keep if child lives with respondent. But this command isn’t recognized!

keep if B9==0
