Hello,
I am doing an analysis using the HIV/AIDS status variables and I would like to comment on the HIV testing response rate, i.e. what share of the eligible respondents did not show up or refused testing. Is it possible to somehow obtain this information from the DHS datasets?
Thank you in advance for your response.

Update: I found that in Household questionnaire, for example in dataset for Burkina Faso 2010, there are variables ha63_01-...-ha63_18 describing whether the blood was taken or not. Nevertheless, if I compare the data with the dataset containing only HIV/AIDS tests result, I come to completely different numbers, as the HIV/AIDS results dataset contains over 15,000 observations whereas if I sum all the Blood Taken observations, I get only approx. 8,500 observations. Can somebody explain what am I missing here? many thanks

See ha63 (8845 observations) for women and hb63 (7734 observations) for men. The observations in the AR file are for both women and men.
