Please, I need guide to generate DHS reported percentages of complete vaccination, postnatal care within 48 hours and exclusive breastfeeding in Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Malawi.

1. For vaccination I used the command below and replicated this for other vaccines of which what I got was slightly higher for all countries except Kenya. I used hw1 because b19 is not in Kenya dataset. How can I get accurate complete vaccination in the DHS reports?

gen bcg=0
replace bcg=1 if h2>0 & h2<8
replace bcg =. if hw1<12 | hw1>23 | b5==0

2. Which other variable will I combine with m71 to get percentage of children who received postnatal care within 48 hours after birth. I know m62 and m66 gives mothers postnatal check.

See below: recode m71 (100/202=1 "within 48 hours") (203/max=0 ">48 hours"), gen (postcheck)
tab postcheck [iw=wt]

3. Pls, how can I generate exclusive breastfeeding? Only Tanzania has the variable s469a.

Thank you.
