Hi All,

I am trying to analyze the risk factors for abortion in the preceding the SADHS (2016). I understand V228 is the variable for pregnancy end in miscarriage, abortion, or stillbirth. But How can I truncate the abortion ? The calendar of questionnary precise that abortion is representated by "A", stillbirt by "S" and miscarrage by "C", but the variable VCAl in data generalize pregnancy terminations by "T". Please guide me in this regard. Sorry for my writing in english, i speak french.

kind regards,
