Hello,
Has anyone Stata code to compute mean durations as published in "Table 5.6 Postpartum amenorrhoea, abstinence, and insusceptibility" ?
I am trying  and failing to replicate the mean duration of postpartum insusceptibility, using the description in the guide to DHS statistics (p.75). The distribution of births and percentages I get are slightly different from the ones published, and my mean duration tends to be 12 months lower.
Thanks,
Bruno

Thanks Trevor. I will appreciate it much if could kindly share with the SPSS codes for the computation of percentage of births for which mothers are postpartum amenorrhoeic, abstaining, and insusceptible, by number of months since birth, and mean duration. I am using the Ghana dataset and would wish to observe the patterns as per some population sub groups.
Thanks
