I am working with the latest IR dataset for Liberia. There are some variables that are hard to make sense of without knowing the original question asked e.g. s730ca "how treated by the community: divorce/separation", and those questions are not mentioned on the questionnaire under the final report either.

Please let me know if someone is aware of their source.

Thank you.

The variable you are referencing is a country specific variable. For country specific questions, the variables are generally named and coded in the same way as they were on the questionnaire. The variable will have a leading "SH" if the question was asked at the household level, a leading "S" if asked at the women's level, and a leading "SM" if asked at the men's level.

The questionnaires can be found in the appendix of the final report.
