Dear DHS-Team,

for my paper, I want to compute some key figures in fertility, like ASFR, parity, PPR and CFR. I use the kenian Data from 1989 - 2014. I´ve matched all KEIR to a general file and classified the women into birthcohorts. While I wanted to compute the age of the women at the particular birth (b3$01 - V011, b3$02 - V011, and so on), I saw that the order of birth is reverse. For example the Variable B3$01 is not the first, but the last birth of the woman. So the age of the woman decreases from birth to birth.
Please tell me how I can reverse the order of the birth or let me know if there is an other way to calculate the age of woman at the time of the particular birth.

Thank you very much!
