Dear DHS team and colleagues,
I recently analyzed breastfeeding practices (Early initiation of breastfeeding, exclusive breastfeeding, bottle feeding and predominant breastfeeding) for the 2010 Malawi Demographic and health survey using STATA. The sample was children less than 24 months. I managed to find rates that match with the report. Now I was trying to do the same for the 2015 Malawi Demographic and Health Survey using the same SYNTAX (sampling weight of[iw=v005/1000000]) that I had used for my previous analysis. Unfortunately, I don't seem to find the rates that match with the 2015 MDHS report. For instance, I found exclusive breastfeeding for 0-5 months= 64%; bottle feeding for 0-5 months=3.15%; predominant breastfeeding=11.45%. Any suggestions on how I can go about the analysis using STATA? Your assistance will be highly appreciated

Regards,

Rose
