Hi,

In BDKR14 database, I want to create a new variable named "Nutritious food given to child" by combining 12 binary variables. What can
I do in the next level? I have done recoding upto the following commands,

******Foods given to the child
*Plain water
recode v409 (0 = 0 "No") (1 = 1 "Yes"), gen(water)
label variable water "Plain water"
label values water water
ta water

*juice
recode v410 (0 8 = 0 "No") (1 = 1 "Yes"), gen(juice)
label variable juice "juice"
label values juice juice
ta juice

*Tinned/powdered milk
recode v411 (0 8 = 0 "No") (1 = 1 "Yes"), gen(tmilk)
label variable tmilk "Tinned/powdered milk"
label values tmilk tmilk
ta tmilk

*Baby formula
recode v411a (0 = 0 "No") (1 = 1 "Yes"), gen(bf)
label variable bf "Baby formula"
label values bf bf
ta bf

*Bread, noodles & other foods from grains
recode v414e (0 = 0 "No") (1 = 1 "Yes"), gen(grains)
label variable grains "Bread, noodles & other foods from grains"
label values grains grains
ta grains

*Potatoes, cassava or other tubers
recode v414f (0 = 0 "No") (1 = 1 "Yes"), gen(tubers)
label variable tubers "Potatoes, cassava or other tubers"
label values tubers tubers
ta tubers

*Eggs
recode v414g (0 = 0 "No") (1 = 1 "Yes"), gen(eggs)
label variable eggs "Eggs"
label values eggs eggs
ta eggs

*Meat
recode v414h (0 8 = 0 "No") (1 = 1 "Yes"), gen(meat)
label variable meat "Meat"
label values meat meat
ta meat

*Pumpkin, carrots or squash
recode v414i (0 = 0 "No") (1 = 1 "Yes"), gen(pumpkin)
label variable pumpkin "Pumpkin, carrots or squash"
label values pumpkin pumpkin
ta pumpkin

*Mangoes, papayas, other vitamin a fruits
recode v414k (0 = 0 "No") (1 = 1 "Yes"), gen(fruits)
label variable fruits "Mangoes, papayas, other vitamin a fruits"
label values fruits fruits
ta fruits

*Mineral rich foods
recode v414m (0 8 = 0 "No") (1 = 1 "Yes"), gen(mineral)
label variable mineral "Mineral rich foods"
label values mineral mineral
ta mineral

*Fish
recode v414n (0 8 = 0 "No") (1 = 1 "Yes"), gen(fish)
label variable fish "Fish"
label values fish fish
ta fish


What should be the next commands to create a binary variable named "Nutritious food given to child" (Given properly, Not given properly) by combining
these 12 variables.?
Can anyone help me?

Thank you very much.

Following is a response from DHS Technical Specialist, Rukundo Benedict:

Thanks for your question. It would be good the know the context in which you plan to use this variable as this is not a standard WHO IYCF variable. What does the "nutritious food given to child" variable mean? It seems like you are trying to create a variable similar to the minimum dietary diversity (MDD). I would refer you to this post as it walks through how to create the MDD. It will also give you an example of code for how to create the "nutritious food given to child" binary variable if you decide that is what you want to do.

Thank you very much for understanding this.
Exactly this was what I needed to know.
Will you please help me to recode the variable in binary format?

Minimum dietary diversity couldn't be found in BDHSKR 2014 database. Now what can I do?

Following is a response from DHS Technical Specialist, Rukundo Benedict:

Stata code for calculating Minimum Dietary Diversity using the BDHS 2014 can be found here: https://userforum.dhsprogram.com/index.php?t=msg&th=5461 &goto=10727&S=Google. Once you have generated the food groups the last few lines generate the binary variable for MDD.

Dear DHS Experts, How can I construct Minimum Dietary Diversity Score from KR file Using SPSS command? Sorry I am a fresh DHS User.
Thank you in advance!!
