Dear DHS team and users,
In the Egypt DHS 2014, there is a chapter on child welfare. I am looking for the data of this chapter. I cannot find these data on any of the data files KR, IR, BR and so. Where are they?

Dear User,
These variables are located within the household. Most are country specific. You will want to take a look at your frequencies and look at variables which start with SH. You will also want to take a look at the document called EGIR61.doc. This document was distributed with the data and contains a list of all the country specific variables in the data set along with their labels. It will be useful if you also take a look at the questionnaires (located in one of the Appendices in the report). The final report can be downloaded here: https:// rts.cfm If you look at the tables within chapter 14 in the report, you will be able to figure out which variables belong for this section. Other useful documents are the Guide to DHS Statistics https:// onnaires-and-manuals.cfm and The Standard Recode Manual https:// onnaires-and-Manuals.cfm
A snapshot of some of the variables you will need is below for your reference (located in RECH4 of the recode file).
