Good day Sir/Ma,
I am extremely grateful for all the help. I was able to use the syntax sent to compute EBF and Predominant breastfeding (PBF) rates for the three years 2003, 2008 and 2013. I had to adjust the syntax to compute EBF and PBF for 2008 and 2003, as the variables were different for the two other years. I am using the Nigerian DHS dataset (birth recode files) and I got the following rates:
2003 - EBF 17.1%, PBF 52.9%
2008 - EBF 13%, PBF 43.1%
2013 - EBF 17.2%, PBF 69.9%

from the NDHS reports, the prevalences reported were:
2003 - EBF -17.2%, PBF 53%
2008 - EBF - 13.1%, PBF 43.6%
2013 - EBF - 17.4%, PBF - 69%

I would like to confirm again, that all these are taken as matches when compared to the reports.

My next dilemma now is can I merge all the 3 years (2003, 2008 and 2013) before commencing on further analysis? I ask these because the variables are different especially in 2003, where the variables regarding foods given to children less than 6 months are v469A, v46B....v469Y, whilst for 2008 and 2013, the variables are v409 ...v14

Lastly, I am a little confused with the Recode files. Please I would like to know if there is a specific recode file for each year. I have downloaded Recode2, Recode3, Recode4, Recode5 and Reecode6. I would like to be sure which recode is for which dataset.

Thanks again,

Adenike
