Dear DHS team,

I have seen many discussion about the Under-five mortality estimation in this forum but not sure which will be working fine to relate with the National report.

I would like to use India DHS stata data to estimate NNMR=Neonatal mortality rate,PNMR=Post-neonatal mortality rate,IMR=Infant mortality rate,CMR=Child mortality rate,U5MR=Under five mortality rate and using BR file.


I'm using this code in Stata and can anyone help me what I am missing here?

I've seen the reference from http://siteresources.worldbank.org/INTPAH/Resources/Publicat ions/459843-1195594469249/HealthEquityCh3.pdf and http://legacy.measuredhs.com/help/datasets/

gen hypage1=(v008-b3)
gen survivelength=.
replace survivelength=hypage1
replace survivelength=b7 if b5==0
gen dead=(b5==0)

ltable survivelength dead [fw=v005] if hypage1 <60 , int(0,1,3,6,12,24,36,48,60) failure



It would be appreciated if you can help me in this regards.

Thanks
Jayanta

This post might help...

https://userforum.dhsprogram.com/index.php?t=msg&th=5071 &goto=9708&#msg_9708

I think the problems laid out in that thread might help you get there. In particular "Please see the Guide to DHS Statistics, pages 90-94, and pay particular attention to the Calculation section. We use a synthetic cohort life table approach as described in point 3 on page 91, and we estimate mortality for a five year period preceding the survey (see the diagram on page 93)..."

If that doesn't fully get you there, it might at least get you closer and then you could ask narrower questions that might be easier to answer. I'm not a mortality expert, and the calculations are a little tricky, but the Guide to Statistics and that previous thread are probably the best places to start.

Hello Jayanta,

Not sure if you have found your answer but here is a User-written Stata command that gets you all the child mortality rates easily:
syncmrates v008 b3 b7 [iw=v005]

You will have to install the ado file
findit syncmrates


Best

Hi all, i`m trying to estimate under five mortality for Zambia using the stata package "SYNCMRATES" but i seem not to get what is the official 2013/4 ZDHS report. Is there something i`m missing? Any alternative way of calculating mortality especially by sub population will help.

Try this

forvalues x=0/3{
syncmrates v008 b3 b7 if v106==`x' [iw=v005], cluster(v021)
}


Hope this helps

I also made an R Package available to compute Childhood Mortality Rates: childhoodmortality [ https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/childhoodmortality/i ndex.html.]

fmwansa: This packages optionally calculates childhood mortality rates for any population subgroup that the user specifies. Hope this is helpful!
