Hi!
I have looked at data from the data set MWFC6JFLSR. This is data from the inventory questionnaire from the Malawi SPA 2013. In some variables equipment is not available in the bigger hospitals which we think is strange. This made us think of how the data was collected. So my question is: what were the instructions to the data collectors when they collect data in bigger hospitals? Did they actively approach the emergency department or did they only collect data in other parts of the hospital in the genereal opd? Emergency equipment may only be available in the emergency department so have they approached the emergency department? Is it possible to get to know which person or department the collectors have approached?

Best regards,

Cecilia Lindsjö
