Hello -

Yes I tried to select on months 0-59 preceding the survey and I get closer with live births but also lose stillbirths. I am attaching the do file I used just to create the DHS2002 sample in case you can see any obvious issues. I am calculating months pregnant based on event_time in calendar year and then using that to select pregnancies that were 7 months or longer. I also get different numbers depending on whether I use calendar data on birth history data. But stillbirth estimates are coming directly from calendar data.

Thank you,
Alka Dev
