I am unable to find 443A " Have you ever suffered from an obstetrical fistule ?
(SICKNESS CHARACTERIZED BY THE INCONTROLABLE FLOW OF URINE AND/OR FECES FROM THE VAGINA DUE TO A PERFORATION IN THE WALL OF THE VAGINA) " in the data. Could someone help direct me to where it is?

This is a country specific variable, and all such variables start with an "S". They are generally named and coded in the same way as they were on the questionnaire. The variable will have a leading "SH" if the question was asked at the household level, a leading "S" if asked at the women's level, and a leading "SM" if asked at the men's level. The variable you are looking for is:

Thanks for the response Bridgette. I am looking at the individual recode and do not see S433A. Where can I find the data on the women's level?
