Dear Janet,

The code provided is our standard code but sometimes this can sometimes differ slightly for each country/survey. You always need to check the table notes in the final report. In Table 5.12 you can know which women were selected from the note below the table. According to the note we should only select for women using the female sterilization, pill, or IUD and remove women who received their method from friends/relative or husband. To adjust the code you need to change the categories selected for v312 and also add a line to replace missing if v326 (source of method) is 32 or 33. See below. You can do the same for the remaining indicators.

I checked this and it matches the final report.

//Informed of side effects
gen fp_info_sideff = 0 if inlist(v312,1,2,6) & (v008-v317<60)
replace fp_info_sideff = 1 if (v3a02==1 | v3a03==1) & inlist(v312,1,2,6) & (v008-v317<60)
replace fp_info_sideff=. if v326==32 | v326==33
label var fp_info_sideff "Informed about side effects or problems among female sterilization, pill, IUD, injectables, and implant users"

gen wt=v005/1000000
ta fp_info_sideff [iw=wt]

Thank you.
