Following is a response from DHS Stata Specialist, Shireen Assaf:

The correct variables for number of antenatal care visits for the most recent birth in the IR file is m14_1.
So for instance if you want to recode this variable to match Table 9.2 in the final report you would run the commands in Stata:
recode m14_1 (3 =2 "2-3 visits") (4/20=4 "4+ ANC visit") (98=5 "dk/missing"), gen(anc)
gen wt=v005/1000000
ta anc [iw=wt]

The variable for institutional deliveries for the most recent birth in the IR file is m15_1 . Note that to match the final report in Table 9.6 you would need to use the KR file and the variable m15 as follows:
recode m15 (21/24=1 "public sector") (31/33=2 "private sector") (11/12=3 "home") (96=4 "other") (99=5 missing), gen(place)
gen wt=v005/1000000
ta place [iw=wt]

If women is your unit of analysis you would just use m15_1 for the most recent birth in the IR file.

I realize that you were asking about SPSS not Stata but the variable names are the same in SPSS and Stata files.

I hope this answers your questions.
