Following is a response from DHS staff member, Tom Pullum:

We apologize for the delay in this response. The attached program calculates the indicators and tables on postnatal care for the mother and the child--the interval and provider, and also the interval if the provider is skilled and the provider if the interval is <2 days. The indicators are difficult because there are separate variables in the data for births in a facility and births at home. Also the interval "<2 days" actually includes the day of delivery, plus the following 2 days (the interval <=202). Presumably code 202 is included because the WHO indicator specifies that the checkup should be within 48 hours after the birth, and that interval would extend into the second day after the birth (code 202).

The program is given as a text file. Stata users can import it into Stata and non-Stata users can read it in Notepad and adapt it.
