Dear DHS team,

Please i need your help in computing Exclusive Feeding variable in SPSS. I tried to compute myself by following instruction given in this guideline ( 90_eng.pdf?ua=1) page 34.

Calculation: (IYCFAGE < 183) AND(V404 =1)AND(V409 - V413D all=2)AND(V414A - V414W all=2) / IYCFAGE < 183 * 100

However i get the message saying " The expression is incomple. Check for missing operands, invalid operators, unmatched parentheses or excessive string lengths.

Can you please help me solving this.

Waiting with great hope.

Thank you,

Dear User,
Please refer to the Guide to DHS Statistics: http:// onnaires-and-manuals.cfm The section dealing with exclusive breastfeeding begins on page 123. Please review and if you have additional questions, please feel free to post again. We do not have code in SPSS to distribute, but you may find some guidance on how to approach your analysis in The Guide to DHS Statistics. This guide was created specifically to work with DHS data. Thank you!
