I am trying to replicate the indicator "Mother's first postnatal checkup in first two days after birth" for NDHS 2011 and 2016 (as seen in Stat compiler). However, I am having difficulty replicating the stats. I have the following questions:

1) In NDHS 2011, the corresponding variable is m51. However, in 2016 dataset, there are two variables that can be used: m63(how long before discharging respondent health check took place) and m67(how long after discharge/delivery at home respondent health check took place).

2)Since this indicator is for women who gave birth in the two years preceding the survey, I am not sure exactly how to create this. I can't use b19 since this variable is not included in the 2011 dataset. I can create a variable ch_age= v008-b3, however, the dates are recorded differently in both years.

If someone can share their code or guide me in the right path, that would be very helpful!
