This is a 2-digit variable that represents how long the woman is planning to breastfeed the child with which she is currently pregnant, except for the following codes.
95 = Not interviewed (female questionnaire)
96 = Not interviewed (household questionnaire)
99 = NIU (not in universe)
BFPLANVAL, together with BFPLANTIME, reports for how long the woman is planning to breastfeed the child with which she is currently pregnant.
Note that the codes in this variable are not reported in a specific unit of time i.e., months, or years. Rather, the unit of time in which the woman responded is reported in BFPLANTIME. Users must use both BFPLANVAL and BFPLANTIME to determine the exact amount of time that the woman plans to breastfeed.
The question associated with this variable was included in the female questionnaire.
