Hi,
Can you help me out?
DHS dataset showed whether children received BCG, DPT, polio or measles.

I am wondering if this is for all the children who are under 5 years old at the time of the DHS surveys?

If yes, how can I get the data only for children who are aged 12-23 months at the time of the DHS surveys??

Thank you!!

Hi

First you need to convert age of each child into months, as you know age is given in CMC format. For this conversion I did analysis in SPSS using following syntax:

*// Number of children.
*// Only for living children age 12-23 months .
COMPUTE months = V008 - B3.
SELECT IF (B5 = 1 & Months >= 12 & Months <= 23).


I hope this will be helpful.

I've filtered out the PDHS data by Childern aged 12-23 months before the survey but the sample doesn't match with sample mentioned in PDHS report. What should i do next?
