I am using KR file to replicate exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) and Non-Exclusive BF report on the final 2016 EDHS. M4 code (Duration of breastfeeding) has sub-categories. I re-categorized '95' still breastfeeding as '1' /EBF and all other as not still BF/ Non-EBF or 0.
I used for child living with his mother (B9) and 0 5 ages (B19). I found Still BF as total number of 1003 infants and Non-Still BF infants as 59. But the finding didn't coincide with that of the final 2016 EDHS report.
I have also read Guide to DHS 7 statistics and many forums on EBF. But I didn't get about Ethiopian DHS 2016 command to find Exclusive breastfeeding vs. Non-Exclusive BF. Would anyone help me the right command to find out Exclusive breastfeeding and Non-Exclusive breastfeeding in the Ethiopian DHS 2016 KR file? I appreciate in help, please.

Best regards,
