Hi All,

I am using the women file from NFHS-4 India. I want to identify which is the next birth order after a woman had an abortion. Also, I want to know how many children does a woman had at the time of the abortion.

If I use the greater (>) or lesser (<) function with the date of abortion in the Stata command, it shortlists all the births before and after the abortion.

Any clue?
