Dear DHS Representative,

Kindly explain the reason behind the fact that antenatal care for last birth in the preceding five years before the conduct of the survey (PDHS 2017-18) the simple tabulation of variable m71 & m72 (Postnatal care variables) is showing that nearly two thousand women received the postnatal care. However, the variable represents ANC care (for example the place of delivery m15) its tabulation is showing the total response of nearly 8 thousand women if we exclude those women who had the delivery at home and who respond as "other" still those women who had the delivery in any type of health facility outnumber those women who had taken postnatal care.

Please elaborate on what this discrepancy means (Missing data by data collector or Missing Postnatal care by Pakistani women even those who had the opportunity to get the antenatal care for their last birth.

Please see my stata output. (BR-file 2017-18)


Best Regards

Dr. Hussain
