Dear All,

I am trying to recode timely full vaccination coverage in Bangladesh. In the BDHS 2014 report, I have found more than 90% coverage of Pentavalent 1, 2 and 3 vaccines.

However, in the Dataset I cannot find any variables related to pentavalent. The only close one is DPT which denotes for diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus. It does not include HepB and Hib vaccine.

I was wondering which variables should I used for Pentavalent vaccine recoding.
