Dear Forum,

Analysing the children dataset 2015 and 2010 in Rwanda, I found out that the total sample used in the report for the IYCF practices is much bigger than the total sample in the raw dataset. I only took into account the children from 6 to 23 months, as the IYCF practices analyze children in this range of age.

Total sample in DHS 2015 report (pag 159) for IYCF practices: 2.409 children age 6-23 months
Total sample in DHS 2015 raw dataset "RWKR70FL" using stata -tab hw1 if hw1>=6 & hw1<=23- : 1.171 children age 6-23 months

Total sample in DHS 2010 report (pag 153) for IYCF practices: 2.372 children age 6-23 months
Total sample in DHS 2010 raw dataset "RWKR61FL" using stata -tab hw1 if hw1>=6 & hw1<=23- : 1.214 children age 6-23 months

Please, see attached a pdf. I don't know whether I am missing some sample.

Thank you very much in advance.
