Hi All,

I am attempting to use variables h12a-h12z and h32a-h32z in Ethiopia to look at treatment sources for ill children. However, the newest 2016 data set for Ethiopia has a large number of generic variable labels denoting country-specific categories ("cs public sector", "cs private medical," and "cs other sector"). The most common treatment source for diarrhea is h12b and it has the generic "cs public sector" label. Is there any way to back out what's behind these country-specific labels? (I was expecting a Word document offering more detail on the data in the zip file, but didn't see one). Ideally, I would be able to isolate CHWs from public facilities or private shop from other private facilites, for example.



Thank you.

Anthony
