Hello! I am analyzing India's NFHS data, particularly, PR and HR data, for 1998-99 and could not find the variable for "Date of Birth (CMC)". The data should under the variable "B3"; however, there is no such variable in either PR or HR data. I also looked at the labels of the variables in these two datasets, but again couldn't find a variable labeled "date of birth". Any help will be much appreciated.

You will find B3 in the IR CR KR or BR files, it's not in the HR PR or MR files.
