How can I handled cases of children who have died? ,say in the first year of their life!

So I am using STATA and trying to merge the files, I just wanted to confine my data set to the following cases:

1- Household with children under five age.
2- Ever married women with children under five age.
3- Child is a live
Meaning to omit the records for died children, unmarried women, household does not have children under five.

Not having them included in the analysis Does it mean that I obtain results may be subject to "sample selection biases" ?!!

Can anyone guide me Please!
