I recently accessed the ZDHS data for a study I am? doing on socioeconomic determinants of SHE utilization amongst Gender Based Violence victims in Matebeleland South. I looked at the variables in the data and there was no variable for the domestic violence part of the questionnaire,despite it being reported in the DHS report.

Where may I access the domestic violence variable for the Zimbabwe DHS data~2015

Dear User, all the domestic violence variable in the recode file start with the letter 'D'
for example:
D130B: Previous husband: physically forced to have sex...
If you check through the frequencies you will be able to find all of them. Start with D005 which is the weight variable for that section.
Thank you!
