good day, i have read all the messages in the thread, but i still need some help please. i am working on exclusive and predominant breastfeeding using the 2003, 2008 and 2013 Nigerian DHS dataset.
firstly, i would like to clarify if it is alright to use the birth recode file, because i have seen that most people have been using the kids recode file.
secondly, i would like directions in SPSS as that is the software i know how to use. what i have done is not matching with the result in the NDHS report and i would be grateful if clarifications can be made.
using the 2013 birth recode file, I selected cases if b8 < 6 (because the population I am working with is babies less than 6 months)
next, I recoded into a different variable all the feeds given, for example if child was given plain water 0 = no, 1 and 8 = yes. original label in the dataset is 0= no, 1 = yes, 8 = dont know.
for EBF, I added those who were currently breastfeeding and had 0 in all the foods listed, I have a list of 21 foods (v409, v410, v411, v411A, v412A, v412C, v413, v414E, v414F, v414G, v414H, v414I, v414J, v414K, v414L, v414M, v414N, v414O, v414P, v414S, v414V)

I did not get the same result as in the report. I would like to know how to go about this.
Thanks so much
