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.
For women who gave birth in the last three to five years and whose young child was still alive, BRSFEDBOT_ALL (M38_x) indicates whether the child drank anything from a bottle with a nipple during the previous day and night.
BRSFEDBOT_ALL consists of a set of up to six separate variables, covering the most recent birth (BRSFEDBOT_01) up to, potentially, the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., BRSFEDBOT_02, BRSFEDBOT_03, BRSFEDBOT_04, BRSFEDBOT_05, and BRSFEDBOT_06) during the reference period prior to the survey. If BRSFEDBOT_ALL is included in a data extract, all these separate variables are included in a researcher's data file.
The information in BRSFEDBOT_ALL was collected for all births within the reference period preceding the survey. In many cases, data were hypothetically collected on up to six births, but no women in the survey had so many births (e.g., no woman had 4 or more births in 3 years, or had 5 or 6 births in 5 years). If, for example, no woman in a survey had 6 births in five years and only blank values were included in the original DHS file, then BRSFEDBOT_06 would not be available for that survey in IPUMS-DHS.
Some surveys, specified in the Comparison section, collected this information for only the last-born child (BRSFEDBOT_01).
