Further, I am writing to request for help to estimate mean and median duration of breastfeeding, postpartum amenorrhoea and insusceptibility, preferably using the lifetable. I would like to examine the patterns by age groups and relate them to contraception adoption. Postpartum variables are not borken down by age and are not readily available in DHS reports, I would appreciate if you could suggest the Stata/spss lifetable commands for computation of the variable or something similar. I have tried to estimate using the Prevalence /Incidence method in SPSS but I am getting estimates which are higher than DHS estimates and some of them implausible for the age group 15-19.
