I need the percentage of mother that received antenatal care from a medically trained provider from BDHS 2014(only for last birth and three years proceeding the survey.

Is anyone help me to clarify those facts or share a general code for BDHS 2014. Thanks in advance.

Following is a response from DHS Senior Research Associate, Lindsay Mallick:

Table 9.1 on page 113 of the final report (https://www.dhsprogram.com/pubs/pdf/FR311/FR311.pdf) contains the information you are requesting. The variables you would need to calculate this are: v238 (births in the last three years), m14_1 (number of ANC visits- to determine any ANC), and m2a_1 through m2n_1 (for information on who provided ANC). The code will depend on which statistical package you are using.

Many thanks Lindsay Mallick. I will apply stata software for analyzing data. I calculated frequency by using your direction. But its not like your mentioned table. If possible, please send me the detailed coding. It will be very much helpful for me.

I used following stata command to calculate antenatal care from trained providers. But I did not get actual result reported in BDHS 2014 report.

*Sought antenatal care from trained providers: OK
gen anc_sba=0 if bidx_01==1
foreach (x in a b c d e) & (i in 1 2 3 4 5 6) {
replace anc_sba=1 if bidx_01==1 & m2`x'_i==1
replace anc_sba=0 if bidx_01==1 & anc_sba==.
}

tab anc_sba if age3_==1 [iw=wgt]

Your suggestion to solve this problem much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Following is another response from DHS Senior Research Associate, Lindsay Mallick:


Thank you for sharing your code. If you notice from the table description, this table only includes information on antenatal care for the most recent birth in the three years preceding the survey. You'll first need to set that as your denominator. You can also simplify your code since this information is only collected for most recent birth- you do not need to specify bidx_01==1 or include m2`x'_`i'.

gen wt=v005/1000000

*denominator for table 9.1
ta v238[iw=wt]
recode v238 (0=0) (1/5=1) (else = .), gen(birth3)
label var birth3 "Had a birth in the last three years"
ta birth3[iw=wt] 

*any anc for most recent pregnancy
recode m14_1 (0=0 "no anc") (1/50 =1  "anyanc")  (else = 9 "dk/miss"), gen(anyanc)
lab var anyanc "Any ANC for most recent pregnancy"

*Sought antenatal care from trained providers
gen anc_sba=0 if birth3==1
foreach x in a b c d e {
replace anc_sba=1 if  m2`x'_1==1
}
lab var anc_sba "ANC from a skilled provider"
