Hello DHS team,

I am working on PDHS 2012-13 and calculating some IYCF variables. My cases should be the youngest child living with respondent who are less than 24 months. To calculate this i performed following steps in Under 5 years child file:

1. Select- Age of child <24 months
2. Select- Living with whom=0
3. Select- BIDX=1

But the number of child differ in my calculation and what is given in PDHS 2012-13 report.

My calculation is

Age group of child under 2 years
Frequency Percent Valid Percent Cumulative Percent
Valid Less than 6 months 1075 27,4 27,4 27,4
6 to 8 months 493 12,5 12,5 39,9
9 to 11 months 535 13,6 13,6 53,5
12 to 17 months 1123 28,6 28,6 82,1
18 to 23 months 703 17,9 17,9 100,0
Total 3929 100,0 100,0


But in PDHS 2012-13 report the total number of under 2 years child eligible for IYCF questionnaire is 3,206 ( from table 11.5, page 200)

Grateful if you could help me to find where i am wrong or what i am missing)

Thank you,
Anupa
