Collect the following data by conducting individual interviews with mothers of a representative sample of children aged 20 – 23.99 months:
RECOMMENDED SURVEY QUESTIONS (Q) AND POSSIBLE ANSWERS (A)
(ask the first question only if you did not collect the data in an earlier part of the questionnaire)
Q1: Can you please tell me the age of your youngest children?
1) the youngest child: .... (specify in months)
2) 2nd youngest child: .... (specify in months; cross the answer if the respondent has one child only)
(ask the next question only about a child aged 20 – 23.99 months, if available)
Q2: Yesterday, did you breastfeed this girl/ boy during the day or night?
A2: yes / no
To calculate the indicator's value, divide the number of children aged 20 – 23.99 months who were breastfed during the previous day or night by the total number of children aged 20 – 23.99 months. Multiply the result by 100 to convert it to a percentage.
