I want to estimate the median of breastfeeding using variables m5 in Phases VI and VII. However, I check the map recode and notice that there is a code "93" that means "Ever breastfed, not currently breastfeeding". This information is incomplete because it is not possible to know the time mother stopped to offer breast milk. Do you have any suggestion? I use to estimate duration of breastfeeding using survival analysis.
Thank you very much,
