I would like to run an analysis using variables related to question 947 from the 2012 Indonesia DHS (see p. 449 in Appendix F of the DHS Indonesia 2012 final report). These questions asked respondents whether they thought a woman was justified in refusing sex to her husband or partner for a variety of situations. I looked for these variables among other variables asked in the HIV/STD module, where the question was asked, but did not see any variables with the prefix V7XX that matched these questions. I also looked for the variable s947 in the dataset, but did not find it (on the other hand, variables s947ba-s947bf corresponding to the sub-questions of question 947B in the dataset, exist). I also used the Stata -lookfor- command to look for relevant strings, such as "sti," "refus," and "other women", in the variable labels and names, but still came up empty. Am I missing something here, or were these variables not included in the individual recode dataset?

Dear User-RHS,
The variable you refer to are coded as follows in the recode application:

    { respondent reasons for not having sex }
    V633A = YesNo( Q947A );       { husband has STD }
    V633B = YesNo( Q947B );       { husband has other women }
    V633C = YesNo( Q947C );       { recent birth }
    V633D = YesNo( Q947D );       { tired, mood }
    V633E = notappl;             { !! CS }
    V633F = notappl;             { !! CS }
    V633G = notappl;             { !! CS }

Let me know if you have additional questions.
