I am using the BDHS 2014 dataset, I am interested to look into the women who received postnatal care. so I decided to select the sample of women who had given birth within three preceding years of the survey using variable if v417>0. Total number of women stands at 4494. However, when I am trying to look into the proportion of women who received PNC using the variable m66_1, the total number of respondents shows as 2806. I wonder was the question for all women who had a birth in the last three years of the survey? then why does the N vary? Please guide.
