Dear Sir/Madam
I am from Myanmar and I tried to reproduce the Table 17.5 Child discipline of Myanmar DHS report book. I didn't get exact number for denominator and the percentage. Since Early child development and Child Discipline is not a DHS core module, I can't find anything regarding to this topic in Recode manual and Gide to DHS statistics. Could you please give suggestion where can I find resources and how should I calculate these outcomes. I also attached my do file for your review.
Thanks!

Kyaw Swa Mya

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

Your do file is correct except that you must add one more condition: sh148=hvidx. That is, after you open the data file, run this:

ta sh11a
keep if sh11a==1 
keep if hv102==1 
keep if sh148==hvidx
gen wt=hv005/1000000

ta sh150 [iw=wt]  
ta sh151 [iw=wt] 
ta sh152 [iw=wt]  
ta sh153 [iw=wt] 
ta sh154 [iw=wt] 
ta sh155 [iw=wt] 
ta sh156 [iw=wt] 
ta sh157 [iw=wt] 
ta sh158 [iw=wt] 
ta sh159 [iw=wt] 
ta sh160 [iw=wt] 
  
gen discipline = 0
replace discipline=1 if sh150==1|sh151==1|sh152==1|sh153==1|sh154==1|sh155==1|sh156==1|sh157==1|sh158==1|sh159==1|sh160==1
ta discipline [iw=wt]

Apparently sh11a identifies a household in which the module will be administered, but the module is only applied to ONE child in a selected household. That child is selected at random from all children age 2-14 in each selected household. The line number of that child is given by sh148. For some reason the information is copied onto all of the other children age 2014 in the selected household, but the tables in chapter 17 must be limited to the one selected child.
