Dear Tom,

Thank you.

The Liberia datasets for 2013 and 2019 indicate that over 85% PNC were performed by trained medical personnel.
A quick analysis of the dataset for 2013 and 2019 for PNC first 48hours shows results below (1691 attendance in 2013 and 642 in 2019). This means 2-3 times more PNC attendance by trained personnel in 2013 than in 2019. Grateful if you can clarify this discrepancy.

In the reports PNC including first week of life for both 2013 &2019 - the tables for 2019 indicate 2096 -while in 2013 corresponding figure is 2650.
Also, kindly reshare the GitHub programs include a program for the PNC tables
