I am trying to see the association between exclusive breastfeeding and acute respiratory infection among children under five. Please I want to know the specific variable(s) used to calculate for exclusive breastfeeding in the 2008 Ghana DHS report.

Dear User, I am directing you to another link on our forum by another use. Since our data is in the form of a standard recode file, you should be able to use some of the same variables and figure out how to adapt for your own analysis. http:// userforum.dhsprogram.com/index.php?t=msg&th=294&goto =9098&S=88552d01e5e51abc62a9ddeb9a547d04#msg_9098
You may also want to refer to The Standard Recode Manual http:// www.dhsprogram.com/publications/publication-dhsg4-dhs-questi onnaires-and-manuals.cfm and The Guide to DHS Statistics http:// www.dhsprogram.com/publications/publication-dhsg1-dhs-questi onnaires-and-manuals.cfm Once you review all the material, if you still have questions, please feel free to post again.
