Dear Hassen,

I answered this question from you in a previous post but will answer here as well.

Stata code for FGM indicators can be found here: https://github.com/DHSProgram/DHS-Indicators-Stata/tree/mast er/Chap18_FG
Also you can read more about these indicators here: https://www.dhsprogram.com/Data/Guide-to-DHS-Statistics/inde x.htm#t=18_Female_Genital_Cutting.htm
The FGM indicators uses the IR file.

As mentioned previously, before attempting to run any code from our GitHub code share site, please read the readme file and the main file for the chapter.

Please try to use this code to see if you get a match with the final report.

For your question on perinatal mortality, this is a rate and you cannot create a binary variable from this.

Thank you.

Best,

Shireen Assaf
