Hi,

Does anyone know if API can generate MCH indicators by background characteristics? I have specified background= all, but the code below only gives me totals for births in the past 2,3 or 5 years. Below is a frequency of the byvariableid. Thanks for your help.

You didn't include the background characteristics in the return fields list, so you can't tell which record is which characteristic.
In the example attached I remove the returnfield list so that all columns are returned and you can see the characteristics.
