I would like to estimate the duration (in minutes) of ANC visit using data from the ANC observation in the CDAN71FLSP dataset.
Here is my stata code:

gen start=(c102h*60) + c102m
gen end=(oa125h*60)+ oa125m

gen duration=end-start

Running this command, the duration of ANC visit observed ranges from 0 minutes to 305 minutes. Surprisingly, women for whom the duration of observation is 0 minutes, have all the ANC procedures performed. I wonder if I used good variables or good code because the results seem incredible to me.
Please advise!
