Dear Dr Tom and other DHS experts,

Very recently, it came to my attention that the Calendar in the 2011 Ethiopia DHS data
should first be converted to GC before analysis.
My objectives were to do regression analysis for maternal services (ANC, SBA, PNC C/s delivery).
One of my independent variables is maternal age at birth.
I carried out the analysis before converting the data to GC. Does it affect my analysis?
does it also affect my descriptive statistics?
Should I then re-do my analysis?

Pls receive my thanks for your usual valuable advice.

Regards,
