We used the three Ethiopian demographic and health surveys (EDHSs) (2005, 2011, and 2016) data, which are the nationally representative surveys performed in Ethiopia. In each of the surveys, a two-stage cluster sampling was employed. In the first stage, 540 Enumeration Areas (EAs) for EDHS 2005, 624 EAs for EDHS 2011, and 645 EAs for EDHS 2016 were randomly selected proportional to the EA size and, on average, 27 to 32 households per EAs were selected in the second stage. A total weighted sample of 14672 (5789 from EDHS 2005, 4510 from EDHS 2011, and 4373 from EDHS 2016) reproductive-age women who gave birth within two years preceding the respective surveys and whoever breastfeed were used for this study. There is detailed and comprehensive information relating to the sampling process and other information in each survey report [2729].
