I am working IYCF practice on BDHS child datasets for my MPH thesis,and trying to replicate Minimum meal frequency in table 11.6. But I am not able to get same percentages among breastfed children, non-breastfed children and all children age 6-23 months. I am working in stata and my algorithm as follows;

* Last child in the last 2 years living with mother
* age in months
gen age = v008-b3
* drop if too old or not alive
keep if age<24 & b5==1

* keep only those children living with mother ...
keep if b9==0
* ... and keep the last born of those
drop if _n > 0 & caseid == caseid[_n-1]

drop if age<6

*Minimum meal frequency
tab m39, m

*Minimum meal frequency for breastfeed child age 6-8 months, 9-23 months
recode m39 (2/7=1 "2-7"), gen(mm1)
recode m39 (3/7=1 "3-7"), gen(mm2)

*Minimum meal frequency for non-breastfeed child age 6-23 months
recode m39 (4/7=1 "4-7"), gen(mm3)

*Age group
recode age (6/8=1 "6-8")(9/23=2 "9-23"), gen (age_g)

*Breastfeeding status
gen still_feeding=1 if m4==95
replace still_feeding=0 if still_feeding==.

*Minimum meal frequency applying all conditions
gen mmf1=1 if mm1==1 & age_g==1 & still_feeding==1

gen mmf2=1 if mm2==1 & age_g==2 & still_feeding==1

gen mmf3=1 if mm3==1 & still_feeding==0

It would be very much helpful for me if any one help me with stata command.


Regards,
Nurnabi
