Hi,

It seems that in the DHS Children's Recode for the Nigeria 2003 survey, the v113 (drinking water source), when v113=32 in the stata files, the label for this value is "Protected well in yard/plot", whereas in the other Nigeria surveys, 32 is labeled as "Unprotected well." I wanted to confirm that this difference is intentional and not a potential data entry error.

Thank you.

-Peter

Dear User,
This is not an error. In Nigeria DHS 2003 it should be "Protected well in yard/plot". The coding in the recode file is country specific here.
Thank you!
