Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

The following lines will match the 6284 in table 11.1 of the DHS report:

tab m4_1 if b19_01<24 [iweight=v005/1000000]
label list M4_1

tab m4_1 if b19_01<24 & m4_1~=94 [iweight=v005/1000000]

The youngest child is the one with subscript _1 or _01, and "last two years" is given by "b19_01<24". I suspect that you were not using b19, which uses information about the day of birth, not just the month of birth. It is now the preferred way to get the age of the child in months. 94 is the code for m4="never breastfed".

We have found other discrepancies between the version of the report on our website and the version on the BKKBN website. I cannot explain these differences. Perhaps the Indonesian report was prepared from a slightly different version of the data files.

Sometimes there is a discrepancy between one of our reports and what's on StatCompiler. When that happens we recommend the StatCompiler estimates.
