The ethnicity variable (mv131) only has few data options recorded for real ethnicity. "Other" clumps up many tribes, yet i need the entire list of ethnicity options in Uganda for analysis. How do i find the details of the ethnicity variable when data was recorded as "other" in the men dataset for Uganda DHS 2011.

Thank you
