Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

Here's how I would match table 10.8, which says that 14.5% of women received care from a trained provider within two days after the most recent live birth in the past 5 years.

use ...BDIR4JFL.DTA, clear

label list m15_1
label list m51_1
label list m52_1

gen within_2days=0 if midx_1==1
replace within_2days=1 if (m15_1>=20 & m15_1<96)
replace within_2days=1 if (m52_1<20 & m51_1<=101)
tab within_2days [iweight=v005/1000000]


If you restrict to most recent births in the past 3 years (v008-b3_01<36), you will get 16%. That is, the code for 3 years would be this:

use ...BDIR4JFL.DTA, clear

gen within_2days=0 if midx_1==1
replace within_2days=1 if (m15_1>=20 & m15_1<96)
replace within_2days=1 if (m52_1<20 & m51_1<=101)
replace within_2days=. if (v008-b3_01>=36)
tab within_2days [iweight=v005/1000000]
