Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

The BR file includes all children in the birth histories. The KR file is limited to births in the 60 months before the survey. Both files include children who died, as well as children who survived. The woman's age is v012. You don't need v447a.

In DHS data files, a dot (in Stata) means "Not applicable". It does not mean "Missing".
