Hello DHS team,

I am analyzing NDHS2016 data to do further analysis on knowledge about legalization and place of abortion. For this I need to select all women whose pregnancy ended with abortion during last 5 years preceding the survey. I had conducted similar analysis using NDHS2011 data but it seems that the variables on termination of pregnancy have been changed in NDHS2016. I tried to run following code on Stata but the output of abortion case does not exactly match with Table9.31 Reason for most recent abortion in last 5 year. Can you please suggest if the following code is correct to come up with the number of abortion in last 5 year preceding the survey?

gen abortion = .
forvalues x = 1/9 {
replace abortion = 1 if sprego_0`x' == 4 & ((v008-s215c_0`x') < 60)
forvalues x = 10/24 {
replace abortion = 1 if sprego_`x' == 4 & ((v008-s215c_`x') < 60)

Thank you
