Dear DHS team,

I am using the Kenya DHS 2022 Stata dataset (IR) and would like to analyse teenage pregnancies (age group 15-19) by year for the years 2015 to 2022.

For the years, is p2_01 - p2_20 the right variables to consider? For the pregnancies, the DHS online guide states the variables v201, v213 and v245 to be the ones relating to teenage pregnancy. Is that right?

I am specifically stuck on how I should relate, generate and analyse these variables in Stata to come up with meaningful descriptive summary statistics, line plots and even trend analyses to assess teenage pregnancies by year. I want to evaluate whether teenage pregnancies increased after 2020.

Please assist me with the Stata codes for my analyses.

Thanks in advance.
