I am unable to locate the diabetes and blood pressure variables in Namibia 2013 DHS.
I would like to know if it was included in the survey dataset or I have to make a separate request.

Many thanks

Dear User,
The variables you are referring to are Survey/Country specific. If the question in the Household is QH315, this is a 2 part question. QH315A Systolic and QH315B Diastolic.
These variables will appear as SH315A and SH315B. Same for the blood sugar testing. Start looking at SH336K. You will need to take a look at your questionnaire to see the number in the questionnaire, then look for SH variables with the same number. You can also search for "blood pressure" and "blood sugar". You will find the variables in the frequencies and in the map. You can find the questionnaires in an appendix in the final report. http:// Reports.cfm. If you have additional questions, please feel free to post again. Thank you!
