I am currently working with 2011 Nepal DHS data (Children's Recode) file. I want to create two variables:

1. Mother's age at delivery: I believe that I can create this variable by subtracting B8 (child's age in years) from V208 (mothers age in years). Is this information directly available in the dataset?
2. Parity: Is the information on parity available in the dataset? or should I use V208 (No of births in the last 5 years) for this purpose?

I would really appreciate your suggestions.

Many thanks
