Hi DHS team, I have a question regarding the calculation of perinatal mortality (stillbirths and early neonatal deaths) and neonatal mortality.

I had planned to use the IR data file for Guatemala and reshape the data. Using this codehttps:// userforum.dhsprogram.com/index.php?t=msg&th=4692&got o=8646&#msg_8646 I was able to calculate number of stillbirths.

In order to calculate the early neonatal deaths and neonatal mortality, can I continue to use the IR data file or do I have to switch to the BR data file. If anyone could direct me towards a code to calculate perinatal morality and neonatal mortality through the IR data file, I would appreciate the support.

Thank you!

Dear sir,

I found there is a big difference in the number of children 6 to 23 months of age in Uganda 2011 data between the number of children found in the data set (\UGKR60FL.DTA: n=724) and the number of children in the report with complementary feeding information (n=2136 in page 153).

Even a total number of children with age-month information is 2214 in "UGKR60FL.DTA" in the as below. Also, "UGPR60FL.DTA" showed a total number of children 6-23 months of age was 820. Then how can I get the same number of children with complementary feeding information aged 6 to 23 months of age, which were found in the report (in the page 153)? Could you let us know how the difference in the number was generated.
