Hello,

Thank you for this platform to resolve our confusions.

I am using Nepal DHS of 2011 to analyse the breastfeeding status. However, my results are not matching with the one in the report. The table 11.2 Initial breastfeeding in report says the total number of last born children ever breastfed in last two year is 1993 and total children is 2030. However, mine results are slightly different. It is 1965 instead of 1993 and 1969 instead of 2030. I have taken into account (B9=1, V008-B3<24, BIDX=1 and weight).
When using M4 for the frequency analysis, total ever brestfed, not currently is 67, never breastfeed is 4 and still breastfeeding is 1898 (making total of 1969).

Ever breastfed would be 67+ 1898 = 1965.

Please help me locate where I am wrong. I am using SPSS.

Thank you once again.
