To whom this may be of interest,

I'm registered for institutional access to DHS and GPS data for a few dozen sub-Saharan African countries. I haven't been able to locate the survey variables under the subsection "oral rehydration", particularly for the DR Congo 2013-14 standard DHS survey, Nigeria 2013 standard DHS survey, and Tanzania 2010 standard DHS survey, based on the information provided in DHS VI Recode Manual. I'm most interested in V414E, V414F, V414H, V414I, and V414O. Please advise me on where I can find the survey data for these variables.

Best regards,
Charles

Dear User,
I took a look at all the frequencies for the surveys you mentioned and found most of the variables you listed. Tanzania DHS 2010 did not have V414E, but most of the other variables could be found.
Take a look at the frequencies contained in the following files:
CDIR61.ZIP
NGIR6A.ZIP
TZIR63.ZIP
If you have additional questions please feel free to post again.
