For more clarification, we want to see the percentage of women who, after birth, took PNC within 24 hours of birth/release from a healthcare facility by the medically trained provider (mothpnc), categorized as "appropriate use of PNC," "some level of PNC," and "no use of PNC." In this regard, we are using the following stat code, but the result seems confusing.

//Postnatal care

** Here the postnatal care use

/// For mothers

* Mother's ckeckup after delivery

tab m66_1

* Timing of checkup

tab m67_1, nol

recode m67_1 (100/160=0 "Within 24 hours of delivery") (161/998=1 "More than 24 hours of births "), gen (mothpnc_timing)

tab mothpnc_timing

* Providers of PNC

tab m68_1

tab m68_1, nolabel

recode m68_1 (11/19=0 "Skilled healthcare providers") (21/96=1 "Unskilled healthcare providers"), gen(mothpnc_providers)

tab mothpnc_providers

** Mothers appropriate use of PNC

gen mothpnc=.

replace mothpnc=0 if (mothpnc_timing==0 & mothpnc_providers==0)

replace mothpnc=1 if (mothpnc_timing==1 & mothpnc_providers==0)

replace mothpnc=2 if (m66_1==0 | mothpnc_providers==1)

label define mothpnc 0"Appropriate use of PNC" 1"Somelebel of use of PNC" 2"No use of PNC"

label values mothpnc mothpnc

tab mothpnc

Is there anything need to consider more for the correct estimates of mother PNC? I would be grateful if anyone can help on this regard.
