Dear sir,
I am trying to calculate duration of breastfeeding for under five years old children by using KR data file of Myanmar DHS (2015 - 2016). I would like to know how could I calculate for following information

Breastfeeding status (for children under age 2 who are living with their mother)
□ Not breastfeeding □ Exclusively breastfeed
□ Breastfeeding and consuming plain water only
□ Breastfeeding and consuming non-milk liquids
□ Breastfeeding and consuming other milk
□ Breastfeeding and consuming complementary foods

Duration of breastfeeding (among children born in the 3 years preceding the survey)
□ Exclusive breastfeeding
□ Any breastfeeding
□ Predominant breastfeeding
Could I receive Spss tutorial for above information calculation? I use guide of DHS program, however, I cannot calculate for this. I am not very much expert in Spss and statistic knowledge. Please help me. I am trouble with this.

See for example code for the indicators in the Guide to DHS Statistics. Go to Chap11_NT and see the code provided there.
