Hello everyone, 2 questions:

1. How to show age in months (STATA command please)

2. I am currently trying to figure out how to see children aged 12-24 months who received all basic vaccinations according to vaccination card and mother's report. In other words I want to create a new variable that will encompass children who either a) received all 8 of these vaccinations or b) did not receive all 8 vaccinations. Please let me know the STATA command.

Thank you!

Hello,

For your first question, age in months is b19 is recent surveys. If b19 is not found in the dataset then you can generate age in the KR or BR file as follows

gen age=v008-b3

For vaccination please refer to our code share library in Chapter 10. Specifically the indicators you are interested in are found in CH_VAC.do file. Please read the readme file and the main file for the chapter before running any code. The link is: https://github.com/DHSProgram/DHS-Indicators-Stata
Please go to Chap10_CH folder on this site.

Please also refer to the Guide to DHS Statistics for further details on how vaccination indicators are computed.
