Hello Samia,

If you are trying to match Table 9.10 of the BDHS 2014 Final report you need to perform several checks to match the Table. For instance, you would need to see the type of provider giving the postnatal check.

Please study the code below that will give you a match with the table.

Thank you.

Best,
