Hi Nuruzzaman,

I am following your instruction to calculate exclusive breastfeeding.I understood until Solid food calculation and have some queries. Grateful if you could help me.

1. * Still breastfeeding
replace breast=1 if m4==95

Can we use V404 instead of doing this as V404 gives us info about last child who are currently breastfed?

2. * Generate column variable used in table 11.3
gen feeding=1
replace feeding=2 if water==1
replace feeding=3 if liquids==1
replace feeding=4 if milk==1
replace feeding=5 if solids==1
replace feeding=0 if breast==0
tab feeding,m

I am doing the analysis in SPSS and couldn't understand what it mean by generating column variable?

Hoping to get your reply. Thanks a lot in advance.
