I want to calculate the Neonatal mortality rate (NMR) and other child mortality indicator (IMR, CMR & U5MR) from Indian DHS-5 (2019-21) using Synethtic cohort method in STATA software.
Please provide the commands to get NMR and other mortality indicators in NFHS-5 (India)?

Stata programs for all the indicators in the standard DHS reports are given on our GitHub site. Child Mortality is in the generic chapter 8 https:// 8_CM. There is a specific program ( that calculates the rates. If you want to run that, be sure to read the general information about using the GitHub programs. The logit behind the synthetic cohort approach is described in the Guide to DHS Statistics. Note that there are some tables in the NFHS-5 report that go beyond the usual child mortality tables. Because the sample size is so large, more detail is possible than in other surveys.
