Using the KR data file:

Is the denominator for exclusive breastfeeding:
a. all of the children <6 mo
b. last born children <6 mo (bidx=1)

Are the variables used for tabulating exclusive breastfeeding:
v404 = currently breastfeeding yes/no
v409 to v413d = determine liquid intake
v414a to v414w = determine food intake

Should age be calculated using:
v008 = CMC months for survey date
b3 = CMC months for child birthdate
