Description

For women who gave birth in the last three to five years and whose child is still breastfeeding, BRSFEDNITE_ALL (M35_x) reports how many times the mother breastfed the child the previous night between sunset and sunrise.

BRSFEDNITE_ALL consists of a set of up to six separate variables, covering the most recent birth (BRSFEDNITE_01) up to, potentially, the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., BRSFEDNITE_02, BRSFEDNITE_03, BRSFEDNITE_04, BRSFEDNITE_05, and BRSFEDNITE_06) during the reference period prior to the survey. If BRSFEDNITE_ALL is included in a data extract, all these separate variables are included in a researcher's data file.

The information in BRSFEDNITE_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 BRSFEDNITE_06 would not be available for that survey in IPUMS-DHS.

Many surveys, specified in the Comparability section, collected this information for the last-born child only (BRSFEDNITE_01).
