Dear all,

I am examaning child stunting, wasting and underweight as outcome variables and need to match mothers with children in the Uganda DHS 2016. Is it possible to do this using only the IR file?

Many thanks for your help,

I think you will get everything that you need in Children Recoded File only.

My name is Gideon chunga a student at the university of Zambia. I'm doing a research under the topic of feeding practices of mothers after exclusive breastfeeding among children aged 7 to 59 months.
This analysis involves the use of ZDHS 2018 children file (ZMKR71Fl), stata software.
I'm kindly in need of help.
