Dear Cameron Taylor and Liz ,


Thank you very much for your help.
I'm using now the women recode (IR) file and I saw your answer but i want to know why did you put 97 in your syntax when you created "sptwoanc" (you can see the table of ml1_1).
For our code DRC ,I tried theses syntax and I got now 7168 for the proportion of women who received two or more doses of IPTp during their last pregnancy in the last two years but the problem is now to reproduce the descriptive table,how can I reproduce the result as in the report for example "the descriptive of v013" because I reproduce this descriptive table with the old proportion of 18827.It does not take into account the new proportion of women who have had a birth in the last two years.

Thank you a lot

A response from Senior Malaria Expert, Cameron Taylor:

Hi Fiston,
I included 97 in my syntax code to be all inclusive. If you are using the same code for a larger analysis across multiple countries or over time you might have women who have had more than 30 doses of SP (though this is rare). I want to make sure that my code will work if I run it for all countries/situations.

For your second question the variables after the "IF" statement is what is restricting your analysis to only women who have had a live birth in the past two years. If you don't include that you will be looking at all women in the dataset which is why you are getting n=18,827.

This is showing the age distribution of women who have had a live birth in the past two years

Dear Cameron Taylor ,


If I understood correctly, I have to put in all my analyzes "if" to get each time my total of 7168 ?

Thank you very much for your help.
