Mother's age at birth (maternal age) is considered as an influential factor of infant mortality. In this study mother's age at birth was calculated from the mother's age at marriage and the preceding and successive birth intervals. For the simplicity of the analysis, the data were recoded as 20 or less=1 20-29=2 30 or more= 3

Following is a response from Senior DHS staff member, Tom Pullum:

The following Stata lines will construct this three-category version of the mother's age at the birth of the child. You should be able to translate it into SPSS. The function int(x) constructs the integer part of a number. For example, int(1.1) is 1, and int(1.7) is also 1. There should be something similar in SPSS.

```* Mother's age at the birth of the child
gen moage_years=int((b3-v011)/12)
gen moage=1
replace moage=2 if moage_years>=20
replace moage=3 if moage_years>=35
label variable moage "Age at birth"
label define moage 1 "<20" 2 "20-34" 3 "35+"
label values moage moage
tab moage [iweight=wt]
drop moage_years

```
