Hi there,

I am trying to do some analysis by comparing men and women in Colombia for which I have appended the IR file to the MR file. However, the variable v131/mv131 which represents ethnicity seems to have no observations in the MR file. Has anyone else faced this problem? Is there another way to approximate ethnicity for men?

Following is a response from Senior DHS Stata Specialist, Tom Pullum:

In the IR file, 86% of women (weighted) have "None of the above" for v131. There is not a great deal of ethnic diversity, except in Pacifica (v024=4). As a first approximation, if there are IR cases in the same household as an MR case, you could impute the man's ethnicity to be the same. However, this is definitely not reliable. Perhaps other users will have suggestions.

Thanks so much! Looks like that is the only plausible solution
