Dear All,

I have a question regarding Pakistan Demographic Health Survey. For my research I want to explore the link between cousin's marriages and reproductive attitudes and behaviors. IN PDHS report 2017-18, Table 4.5 gives the statistics on marriages between relatives but when I am unable to find the relevant variable in the data set. Can anyone please help me in this regard?
