The response variable of my study is the number of antenatal care visits of pregnant women from early pregnancy to their 9 months of pregnancy period. From the Individula's (women) data set of the 2011 Ethiopian DHS which is the variable that states " women who had at least 9 months of pregnancy period during survey"?
I am looking your usually experts response.

Following is a response from Senior DHS Specialist, Tom Pullum:

I'm not quite sure what you are looking for. v213 is 1 if the woman is currently pregnant and v213 gives her estimated months pregnant. There is of course considerable inaccuracy in the estimate and most women who are early in the pregnancy will not be included in v213. You say "at least 9 months" but very few pregnancies last for more than 9 months.
