Dear Trevor,

Please, from the previous response (on calculating child age), I tried to get exclusively breastfed children but my figures were different from the report. Any help on what I did not do right?

Thus after running the commands for children ages (0-23m), I followed that with:

*The number of times the children received anything to eat
///aside from breast milk, including both meals and snacks///
//Children who are being exclusively breastfed are coded 0
tab m39

*Recoding m39 to get exclusively breastfed and not exclusively breastfed
recode m39(0=0 "excl")(1/8=1 "no_excl"), gen(excl_brst)
tab excl_brst

*adding sample weight
tab excl_brst [iw=v005/1000000]

*crosstab with children (0-23m)
tab child_age excl_brst
tab child_age excl_brst, row nofreq
tab child_age excl_brst [iw=v005/1000000], row nofreq
