Good Morning. I am working on adolescent breastfeeding practice in Nigeria using the Kids recode of the 2013 NDHS stata file. I have accessed and tried suggestions posted with no success. I have gone through the recode manual and other materials but still could not understand how to calculate it. Pls help.

Dear User,
Can you be more specific about what you are trying to accomplish? Are you trying to replicate a table in the final report? You may need to use the IR file instead of the KR file. You may also want to look at this thread on the forum http:// userforum.dhsprogram.com/index.php?t=msg&th=294&goto =8761&S=6f48f6d155f05ae07b5ce5f05b3725d2#msg_8761

Individual Women's Data - Individual Recode (IR)
This dataset has one record for every eligible woman as defined by the household schedule. It contains all the data
collected in the women's questionnaire plus some variables from the household. Up to 20 births in the birth history, and up
to 6 children under age 5, for whom pregnancy and postnatal care as well as immunization and health data were collected,
can be found in this file. The fertility and mortality programs distributed by DHS use this file for data input. The unit of
analysis (case) in this file is the woman.

good day, please i would need some clarification. i am working on exclusive and predominant breastfeeding in Nigeria, using the birth recode files of NDHS data for 2003, 2008 and 2013. the numbers i get don't tally with those in the data.
2003: i selected cases less than 6 months (HW1 < 6) and got a sample size of 617, but table 11.2 in the report has 659 as the number of living children <6 months.
2008: table 11.3 gives the number of the youngest children under 3 years but in the 0-5 months category as 2,835 and the number under 3 years as 2,874, but i got 2,924.
2013: table 11.2 - <6 months and living with mother as 2,930 and 2,989 as those less than 2 years.

i would like to know how these numbers were arrived at, and what filters were applied, or how the selection was done.

i would also like to know how to select the youngest child in the NDHS birth recode datasets for these years.

Thanks,

Adenike
