I have doubts about question v717 about work of woman. What kinds of job are categorized as "skilled manual" and "unskilled manual"?
Is it possible to find in any manual of DHS? I searched at manual recode and manual map, but i did not find.
Another question is about variables v714 (if the respondent is current working) and v717 (respondent occupation). We realized that women answered the question v717 even if they answered "no" in the question v714. Does question v717 indicate only the respondent's professional? Regardless if she works? What does this question mean?
Thank you so much,
Ana Elisa
