Hi, I need some help, Can someone please provide me the STATA codes to classify the household food security form the Nepal DHS 2011. (To replicate the table 2.17). I will be grateful.

Thank you.

Dear User,
Your post has been moved to the Nutrition and Anthropometry section of the forum in hopes that other users in this section may be able to provide input. Perhaps you can share your code on the forum. Other Stata users may be able to give constructive comments on what you have so far.
The variables in this part of the questionnaire are country specific so the questionnaire question variables should be fairly easy to match with the recoded variables. In this case, they will correspond to the question numbers in the questionnaire, except they will start with SH. For example: QH130 "In the past 12 months, how frequently did you worry that your household would not have enough food?" The recoded variable for QH130 is SH130. A complete list of country specific variables is listed in the documentation distributed with the data. Other resources to help you with future analysis are "The Guide to DHS Statistics" _29Oct2012_DHSG1.pdf, the "Standard Recode Manual" _DHSG4.pdf, a number on-line tools on our WEB site
