I am using KR file to replicate exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) and Non-Exclusive BF report on the final 2016 EDHS. M4 code (Duration of breastfeeding) has sub-categories. I re-categorized '95' still breastfeeding as '1' /EBF and all other as not still BF/ Non-EBF or 0.

I used for child living with his mother (B9) and 0 5 ages (B19) variables. I found Still BF as total number of 1003 infants and Non-Still BF infants as 59. But the finding didn't coincide with that of the final 2016 EDHS report, if it's alright the classification.

I have also read Guide to DHS 7 statistics (Breastfeeding and Complementary feeding, pps. 11.5 - 11.12 sub-sections) and many forums on EBF discussions. But I didn't get about Ethiopian DHS 2016 command to find Exclusive breastfeeding vs. Non-Exclusive BF. Would anyone help me the right command to find out Exclusive breastfeeding and Non-Exclusive breastfeeding in the Ethiopian DHS 2016 KR file? I appreciate in help, please.
Best regards,
