Hello all,
I am working with Nepal DHS 2006, 2011, 2011 about children's diarrhea.However,I found out that in the DHS report, for example, in 2016 NDHS report,in the table 10.8 Prevalence and treatment of diarrhea,the number of children was 4887,but in the data file npkr7hdt the number of cases was 5038.
Even if no response cases are excluded in h11(had diarrhea recently), the number is not consistent with the report.
The same condition also happened in the 2006and 2011 NDHS.
Any help?
Thank you !
