Hello everyone, please i need help, i am working on using Brass p/f ratio and i would like to know how to get the number of births in the past year by each five year age group of women and the total children ever born by women in each of the five year age groups.

Which NDHS? - I'm guessing Nigeria, but we have several NDHS.

Just crosstabulate v209 (births in the past year) by v013 (age of woman in 5-year groups), or v201 (total children ever born) by v013.

Your analysis is for women, so use the women's (individual) recode (IR) file.
