Dear Sir,
I am working on complementary feeding indicators (MDD, MMF and MAD) of Ethiopian DHS from 2005-2016. However, I coudnt found the variables for these indicators in 2005 EDHS. What shall I do?

Thanks
Kedir

Following is a response from Senior DHS Nutrition Research Associate, Rukundo Benedict:

For the Ethiopia 2005 survey, data required to calculate the MDD, MMF, and MAD were not collected. Please read the survey report here.

Dear Bridgette
I thank you for your immediate replay.

Now I have found the variables for the seven food groups but the problem is i couldn't found the variables for milk and milk products(v469e, v469f and v469x)in the dataset.

I have attached the report of MDD, MMF and MAD for Ethiopian DHS 2005.

So i will be happy if i know the variables they used for milk and milk products part.

Thanks
Kedir

Following is a response from Senior DHS Nutrition Research Associate, Rukundo Benedict and Christina Juan, Research Data Analyst:

You said that you could not find the variables v469e, v469f and v469x in the Ethiopia 2005 data. Here are the three variables:

• V469e is s469c, which is labeled as: "child drank: milk such as tinned, powdered, or fresh animal" ;
• v469f is the same, "times gave child infant formula" , but is empty;
• v469x is s470q: "times gave child YOGURT" is "child ate: cheese, yogurt, or other milk products."

Please confirm that you can match the published values of MDD, MMF, and MAD with these substitutions.

Dear Kedir,

You will find that IPUMS DHS is a very useful tool when you are trying to determine which variables are included in which samples. In your case, you would click SELECT SAMPLES, click the Ethiopian samples, and click Submit. Then you could search for "Milk" to see all the variables on that topic. An "X" means the variable is included in the sample; a "." means it is not.

Because you are comparing across samples, you might also find IPUMS DHS useful to create a single, fully integrated file that includes just the variables that interest you. The User Guide will walk you through that process. It is pretty intuitive.

Please be sure to cite IPUMS DHS if you use the website for reference or if you create a data extract with it.

Good luck with your research!
