Hello

According to the DHS guide on the Minimum Acceptable Diet, to determine the Minimum Acceptable Diet variable, I need to count the frequency of milk given to the child. But in variables that associate with the frequency of milk given to the child (V469E, V469F, and V469X) those are displayed as a missing value in the IDBR71FL data set. My question is, does the missing value represent 0 times of feeding or is there any explanation about it? and Is it okay to change the missing value to 0 (zero)?

Thank you

Following is a response from DHS Lead Nutrition Research Associate, Rukundo Benedict:

To calculate Minimum Acceptable Diet, you need to use the KR dataset and not the BR dataset. In the IDKR71FL, you will find values for the variables V469E, V469F, and V469X. Also in addition to the DHS guide, the DHS now provides syntax to match indicators in final reports. They can be found on GitHub.

If possible, may you paste the code to generate the Minimum acceptable diet (MAD) and Minimum dietary diversity (MDD) here on this forum. The github link you provided is not working.


Please help.
