Hi,

Does survey for women in west bengal state exists?

It seems that there is no record for women in west bengal (same with uttarakhand and telangana) states in women records in 2005 (IAIR52).
Data for this states exist in men data set (IAMR52).

Since women dataset is huge, I was wondering if that was not a shrinkage issue during data compression process.

The variable I use is v024 for women and mv024 for men.

Here are the counts of individuals per state in :

- women dataset

v24 for women in IAIR52 includes all of the states, including West Bengal. Telangana did not exist as a state at the time of NFHS-3. There are no Union Territories in v24. You must somehow be matching up the state numbers with the state names incorrectly. Attached are the weighted frequencies for all the states in v24 in IAIR52.

Thanks for your feedback!
I am refering to the wrong dataset.. The missing data is in the 2015-2016 version of the Indian survey (IAIR7DT).
Sorry for the confusion.

I made additional tests downloading directly from the website the dataset instead of using the package rdhs (R package).
Everithing is fine with the manual method.
My feeling is that rdhs fail to download the full women recode dataset.. probably due to the size of the dataset.
Everithing is then ok when downloading manually the files.
Thanks for the assistance.
