For decision making, we standardly use:
gen decisionmaking = 0
replace decisionmaking = decisionmaking + 1 if v743a==1 | v743a==2
replace decisionmaking = decisionmaking + 1 if v743b==1 | v743b==2
replace decisionmaking = decisionmaking + 1 if v743d==1 | v743d==2

In some surveys, additional questions are asked and may be used in the decision making variable.

We do not produce a women's empowerment index, but there are various measures of women's empowerment that are presented in the DHS reports. Please see the description of the Women's empowerment chapter in the DHS tabulation plan chapter on Women's Empowerment
