Hello,

I'm using two dhs datasets, Mali 2012-13 (mlir6hfl.dta) and Uganda 2011(ugir60fl.dta). I'm interested to husband/partner's occupation (v704 and v705). I have two questions about these variables.

1) When I made a frequency distribution of v704 for both countries, I found no label for its categories. How can I find them for both countries?

2) When I tabulated v705, I found just one category (did not work). Does this mean that all the women enumerated in this two countries dhs had unemployed husbands/partners ? Or, is there another variable that captures husband/partner's occupation grouped for these countries?

Here are Mali tabulation for example,

. tab v704

husband/par |
tner's |
occupation | Freq. Percent Cum.
------------+-----------------------------------
1 | 4,458 49.85 49.85
2 | 271 3.03 52.88
3 | 3 0.03 52.91
4 | 1,213 13.56 66.48
5 | 156 1.74 68.22
6 | 162 1.81 70.03
7 | 86 0.96 70.99
8 | 112 1.25 72.25
9 | 156 1.74 73.99
10 | 202 2.26 76.25
11 | 284 3.18 79.43
88 | 1,744 19.50 98.93
96 | 96 1.07 100.00
------------+-----------------------------------
Total | 8,943 100.00

. tab v705
