I would like to explain underfive mortality risk of index birth with the variable "survival status of preceding birth" using Bangladesh DHS birth recode. However, I do not have a clue on applicable Stata code to generate the variable. Specifically, I want the "survival status of the preceding birth" variable be explicitly classified as:

0 "Preceding birth survived"
1 "Preceding birth died before succeeding birth was conceived"
2 "Preceding birth died after succeeding birth was conceived/born"
3 "No preceding birth/Firstborn"

Any hint on achieving this task will be deeply appreciated.
