I have two questions:
1. Variable names in DHS VII recode does not match with variable names in stata file. For example, V169A reports "Respondent owns a mobile phone" in DHS VII recode. However, in the stata file, the same information is provided by variable s930.
2. For some observations, quite a few missing values are present for which no explanation could be found. For example, if we take the same variable as in the previous question, s930, 122,351 values report yes or no. Others are missing.

Thank you.
