I am writing a paper on under 5 mortality using the Uganda DHS 2011 file. I noticed in the Birth file there a variable on "Birth in last five years" yet no variable on "child death in the last five years". Basically, I want to derive an under 5 mortality vulnerable using the "Births in last five years" (V208) vulnerable. How can I determine survival and deaths in the V208 variable?
