Hello DHS Program Officials,
I have access to the 2017 Ghana Maternal Health Survey dataset, however, several variables related to abortion and miscarriage in Sections 5 and 6 of the women's individual questionnaire are missing.

More specifically, variables from questions 502A (reason for the abortion) to 577 are not in the dataset made available on the DHS website. The variables on abortion in my dataset begin with q577_1 (ever heard of abortion) and end at q582_2 (conditions of legal abortion in Ghana) while all the variables on miscarriage are missing.

I would like to request for the full dataset. Please let me know how to proceed with this. Thanks for your help.
