Hello Trevor,

I am calculating the exclusive breastfeeding among <6 months using Indonesia 2017 datasets.

I used the following commends.

use IDKR71FL

**weight
gen wgt=v005/1000000


* Last child in the last 2 years living with mother
* age in months
gen age = v008-b3
* drop if too old or not alive
keep if b19<6 & b5==1
* recode age into groups
* keep only those children living with mother ...
keep if b9==0
* ... and keep the last born of those
drop if _n > 0 & caseid == caseid[_n-1]
* check the deonimnator
tab age [iw=wgt]

* breastfeeding status.


gen water=0
gen liquids=0
gen milk=0
gen solids=0
gen breast=0

* Water
replace water=1 if (v409>=1 & v409<=8)

* Other non-milk liquids
* check for country specific liquids
foreach xvar of varlist v410 v412c v413* {
replace liquids=1 if `xvar'>=1 & `xvar'<=8
}

* Powdered or tinned milk, formula, fresh milk
foreach xvar of varlist v411 v411a {
replace milk=1 if `xvar'>=1 & `xvar'<=8
}

* Solid food
* check for country specific foods
foreach xvar of varlist v412a v414* {
replace solids=1 if `xvar'>=1 & `xvar'<=8
}

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

tab1 water liquids milk solids breast

* 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

label define feeding 0 "Not breastfeeding" 1 "exclusive breastfeeding" 2 "+Water" 3 "+Liquids" 4 "+Other Milk" 5 "+Solids"
label val feeding feeding

tab feeding [iw=wgt]

However, I found that my result is a little different with the report. I got 51.3% while the report revealed 51.5%.


Could you please guide me further. Thanks
