I am trying to conduct a trend analysis of PNC in BD and was analysing 2004 data. BDHS 2014 report stated that 16% of women who have given birth 3 years preceding the survey received care from a medically trained provider within 2 days of birth. I tried to get this value using following code but the result showing only 6% instead. Can you please help?


gen momcheck = 0 if age<36
replace momcheck = 1 if m50_1 & age<36

label list
recode m52_1 (11/14=1 "medically trained provider") (16/96=0 "other provider"), gen(careprovider)
label list
recode m51_1 (100/202=0 "within 48 hrs") (203/224=1 ">48 hrs") (998=3 "don't know"), gen(PNC_timing)
///women recieved PNC by a medically trained provider within 2 days
gen mom=0 if age<36
replace mom=1 if momcheck==1 & careprovider==1 & PNC_timing==0

I am looking at Table 10.8: postnatal care for mothers and children. BDHS 2004 report

The paragraph above the table also mentioned only 8% of the mother received care from a trained provider, which I would like to estimate. I want to calculate the percentage of mothers who received care from a trained provider within 2 days of birth.
