Hello,

Has anyone Stata code to compute mean durations as published in "Table 5.6 Postpartum amenorrhoea, abstinence, and insusceptibility" ?

I am trying - and failing- to replicate the mean duration of postpartum insusceptibility, using the description in the guide to DHS statistics (p.75). The distribution of births and percentages I get are slightly different from the ones published, and my mean duration tends to be 1-2 months lower.

Thanks,

Bruno
