That is a great insight for me.

My confusion came from how the variables were defined in the recode manual. The variables V201, V208 do not mention whether the children were alive or dead at the time of birth. But now from your explanation, I understand that it is talking about live birth and I don't need to calculate it separately. I am also realizing that I can get pregnancy terminations for the past five years.

I will be using SPSS 27 for analysis. I am also considering using SPSS for data extraction and cleaning, and STATA for analysis.

Thank you very much for your assistance!
