Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
BFEEDANYNOW (V404) indicates whether the woman is currently breastfeeding. If no child was born in the last three to five years, the respondent is assumed to not be breastfeeding.
When children or births are the unit of analysis, this variable describes a characteristic of the mother, which causes all children of the mother to be coded the same way.
This variable has some variation in how current breastfeeding is determined. See Comparability.
