Dear forum users,

I have been trying to replicate the perinatal mortality rates for Nepal DHS 2011 (Table 8.4, page 117-full report). I went through the guide to DHS and also through the messages posted in the forum. I have explored using both the birth recode file and individual. There are couple of variables s216, sprego that I tried but was unable to come with the answer.

I would be glad to have any insights, suggestions on how to replicate the findings.

Thanks,

Dear User,
I will refer your post to one of our experts.
S216B (country specific) Born alive, born dead, before full term: In the recode it is connected with Q216 in the questionnaire.
1 born alive
2 born dead
3 lost before full term
N/A
sprego (country specific) Pregnancy outcome:
0 not assigned
1 live birth
2 still birth
3 miscarriage
4 abortion
N/A

Hope this helps.
Thank you!

Dear Liz,

Thanks for the information. But, unfortunately I am still not able to replicate the findings. I am also trying if I could get an answer through the reproductive calendar but have not been successful so far.

Looking forward to answer from the expert.

Many thanks,

The perinatal mortality is generally calculated from DHS data using a combination of the calendar and the birth history. In the Nepal survey you have a pregnancy history so it could be calculated from that, but I assume that it is calculated in DHS' standard approach from the calendar. Have a look at this thread that asked a very similar question for Indonesia.

Hi,

When i reshape 2011 Nepal DHS IR data file into pregnancy file, i still find hard to get information for pregnancies which turned into stillbirth. For example, pregnancy interval or desire for pregnancy for those cases which turned into stillbirths.

Looking forward to answer from any experts.

Thanks
