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

Please refer to the Guide to DHS Statistics. The section dealing with exclusive breastfeeding begins on page 123. Please review and if you have additional questions, please feel free to post again. We do not have code in SPSS to distribute, but you may find some guidance on how to approach your analysis in The Guide to DHS Statistics.

Here is another response from DHS Technical Specialist, Rukundo Benedict:

The following syntax may help you to identify any issues with your code.

*// Breastfeeding status .
RECODE M4 (95 = 1) (ELSE = 2) INTO M4w.
VALUE LABELS M4w 1"Still breastfeedig" 2"Not breastfeeding" .
*// Plain water.
COMPUTE PlainW = 0.
IF (V409 = 1) PlainW = 1.
*// Non milk .
COMPUTE NonMilk = 0.
IF ( V410 = 1 | V412C=1 | V413 = 1) NonMilk = 1.
*// Milk .
COMPUTE Milk = 0.
IF ( V411 = 1 | V411A = 1) Milk = 1.
*// Complementary food .
COMPUTE Complem = 0.
IF ( V412A=1 | V414E=1 | V414F=1 | V414G=1 | V414H=1 | V414I=1 |
      V414J=1 | V414K=1 | V414L=1  | V414M=1 | V414N=1  | V414O= 1 | V414S = 1 | V414V = 1 ) Complem = 1.
*// Currently breastfeeding .
IF ( M4w = 1) CBreastF = 1.
VALUE LABELS CBreastF 1"Currently breastfeeding".

DO IF ( M4w = 1).
+ COMPUTE BFStatus = 9.
+ IF (                                                     Complem = 1) BFStatus = 5.
+ IF (                                       Milk=1 & Complem = 0) BFStatus = 4.
+ IF (                   NonMilk=1 & Milk=0 & Complem = 0) BFStatus = 3.
+ IF (PlainW=1 & NonMilk=0 & Milk=0 & Complem = 0) BFStatus = 2.
+ IF (PlainW=0 & NonMilk=0 & Milk=0 & Complem = 0) BFStatus = 1.
ELSE IF (M4w = 2).
+ COMPUTE BFStatus = 0.
END IF.

VALUE LABELS BFStatus 
 0"Not breastfeeding" 
 1"Exclusively breastfed" 
 2"Breastfeeding and consuming plain water only"
3"Breastfeeding and consuming non-milk liquids 1"
4"Breastfeeding and consuming other milk"
5"Breastfeeding and consuming complementary foods"
9"Missing".

This is really useful. However, data values for the last variable BFStatus is not coming when I command the DO IF. How do I go about this? Am working on the Malawi 2015/16 DHS.

Thank You in advance.
