Hi, I want to assess age appropriate immunization for children in the DHS 2006 Pakistan. I want to check if the child got the each vaccine at the time of his/her life when the vaccination was due. I am having difficulty in calculating the age at the time of vaccine receipt. For example for BCG h2d, h2m, and h2y are the variables that describe the time when vaccine was given. However, when I compare this with cmc, current age of child, this gives very erroneous results. I appreciate some guidance.

I am using the below code:

generate h2day=mdy(h2m,h2d,h2y)
format h2day b3 cmc %d
list b8 cmc h2day h2d h2m h2y b3 in 20/50 if h1==1

Dear User,
You may want to refer to The Guide to DHS Statistics. http://www.measuredhs.com/pubs/pdf/DHSG1/Guide_to_DHS_Statis tics_29Oct2012_DHSG1.pdf
The document is bookmarked. Under "Vaccination Rates" you will find useful information regarding vaccinations here.

Use following sytax for producing age at time of vaccination.


____________________________________________________________ _______________
dates for survival analysis
____________________________________________________________ __________


Compute CMCB= ((H2Y-1900) * 12) + H2M.
Compute CMCD1= ((H3Y-1900) * 12) + H3M.
Compute CMCD2= ((H5Y-1900) * 12) + H5M.
Compute CMCD3= ((H7Y-1900) * 12) + H7M.
Compute CMCP1= ((H4Y-1900) * 12) + H4M.
Compute CMCP2= ((H6Y-1900) * 12) + H6M.
Compute CMCP3= ((H8Y-1900) * 12) + H8M.
Compute CMCM= ((H9Y-1900) * 12) + H9M.
COMPUTE BAGE=CMCB-B3.
COMPUTE D1AGE=CMCD1-B3.
COMPUTE D2AGE=CMCD2-B3.
COMPUTE D3AGE=CMCD3-B3.
COMPUTE P1AGE=CMCP1-B3.
COMPUTE P2AGE=CMCP2-B3.
COMPUTE P3AGE=CMCP3-B3.
COMPUTE MAGE=CMCM-B3.
Var Lab CMCB "Century Month Code of age at BCG".
Var Lab CMCD1 "Century Month Code of age at DPT1".
Var Lab CMCD2 "Century Month Code of age at DPT2".
Var Lab CMCD3 "Century Month Code of age at DPT3".
Var Lab CMCP1 "Century Month Code of age at POLIO1".
Var Lab CMCP2 "Century Month Code of age at POLIO2".
Var Lab CMCP3 "Century Month Code of age at POLIO3".
Var Lab CMCM "Century Month Code of age at MEASLES".
Var Lab BAGE "Age in months at BCG".

Var Lab D1AGE "Age in months at DPT1".

EXECUTE.

This is ok when both month and year of vaccination are given, but doesn't handle cases where the month is 44, 66, 97, 98, or 99, or the year is 4444, 6666, 9997, 9998, 9999. Nor does it handle the case where the mother reports that the vacciniation was given, but no date is given.
