Dear DHS team,

I would like to ask about Indonesia data set 2017. Variable m4 still have 0-30 beside 93,94,95,96,97,99 (as the only option for m4 based on the provided syntax). Where we should recode them (number 1 - 30?). I understand it is the total month of breastfeeding, however, it is more than 23 months, as I already limited the child age from 0-23 months only.

please, your kind help,

many thanks and warm regards

Following is a response from our Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

You should treat those codes the same as out-of-range codes or NA (not applicable), and omit them from all calculations.
