dear DHS experts,
I was trying to look at the food consumption pattern if women's in India from the NFHS 2015-2016 Individual recode file. the variable listed for the same v472a, v472b......v472u. But when I try to tabulate them individually it says no observation.
If no one responded to those questions where did the report data for the same came from.

I have attached India file for your reference. It shows the consumption of various types of food (daily, weekly, occasionally, or never). Please see from page no 335 section 10.8, Table 10.23, 10.24.1, 10.25.1 it shows distribution by state/union territory.
A quick reply would be helpful
Regards'
Sreya

Dear DHS experts,
Instead of the variables v472a, v472b......v472u for the dietary consumption pattern the variables are s726a-i, please correct me if I am wrong. Now I need help to find frequencies for a particular district.
can you please guide me which weights to use and the STATA command for the same.
Regards
Sreya
