Hello,

I was checking the consistency of the mother's education variable in the PR dataset (hc61) of Mozambique 2003 survey and I found some inconsistencies.

1. The distribution of education in the Individual Recode for women with a birth in the past 5 years is far different from the PR dataset.

IR dataset:

. ta v149 if v208>0

educational |
attainment | Freq. Percent Cum.
---------------------+-----------------------------------
no education | 2,774 39.59 39.59
incomplete primary | 3,597 51.33 90.92
complete primary | 217 3.10 94.02
incomplete secondary | 376 5.37 99.39
complete secondary | 31 0.44 99.83
higher | 12 0.17 100.00
---------------------+-----------------------------------
Total | 7,007 100.00

PR dataset:

. ta hc61

mother's |
highest |
educational |
level | Freq. Percent Cum.
-------------+-----------------------------------
primary | 9,389 94.74 94.74
secondary | 495 4.99 99.74
higher | 17 0.17 99.91
don't know | 9 0.09 100.00
-------------+-----------------------------------
Total | 9,910 100.00


2. When cross-tabbing the education level and years of education in the PR dataset, you can find women with 0 years in both primary and secondary categories.


. ta hc61 hc62

mother's |
highest |
educational | mother's highest year of education
level | 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 don't kno | Total
-------------+---------------------------------------------- -----------------------------------------------------+------ ----
primary | 274 615 934 826 855 917 619 299 1 | 5,340
secondary | 95 128 109 93 29 41 0 0 0 | 495
higher | 1 0 0 6 1 8 0 1 0 | 17
-------------+---------------------------------------------- -----------------------------------------------------+------ ----
Total | 370 743 1,043 925 885 966 619 300 1 | 5,852


Is it possible that something is wrong with this variable (hc61)?

Thanks in advance,

Leonardo

Hello,

Sorry to bring this up again, we are still struggling with this survey.
Does anyone have any clue?
