Hello,
I am doing a comparative study across 49 DHS countries and am working on the floor, wall and roof materials in a wealth index construction. Unfortunately in 6 of these countries the codes in the Individual Recode files do not have labels and I can't find these in the country's respective codebook either. The countries I am struggling with are:

Burknia Faso (2010) - missing labels for floor materials
Haiti (2012)- missing labels for floor materials
Niger(2012)- missing labels for floor materials
Namibia (2013) - missing labels for floor materials
Sao Tao Principe (2008-09)- missing labels for floor, wall, and no data on roof material
Tanzania (2015-16) - missing labels for floor materials

Any suggestions or advice on this would be very much appreciated.Thanks in advance.
