Dear User,
A response from Dr. Tom Pullum:
Quote:

You seem to value brevity more than clarity. What survey are you working with? The Nigeria 2013 DHS? What do you mean by adolescent? Ages 10-14? What do you mean by "generate"? Do you want to calculate an age-specific fertility rate? Do you just want to construct a binary variable that is 1 if the woman had an adolescent birth and 0 otherwise? Do you want to know the percentage of women who had a birth while an adolescent? During what time period? Are you familiar with the DHS data files? I should be able to help if you can give a better sense of what you are looking for.



Thank you!

How to calculate the age specific fertility rate for adolescent mothers and to construct a binary variable to show if 1 a mother is adolescent or 2 if otherwise.
Am familiar with DHS data
