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 1-2 months lower.

Hi Bruno,

I don't know of Stata code for this, but I can share the CSPro code that is used for this, and perhaps you can work it out from that code. We might also have some SPSS code - I'll check these out and send them to you.

Cheers. Trevor
