Hello,

I am using NGHR7BFL to do an analysis and in the data file, I noticed that there are multiple variables for "Highest educational level attained" (HV106$01 onward). Which one should I use?

Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

You are using the HR file, which has one very wide record per household. The subscripts 01, 02....refer to the line number of the person in the household. Life will be easier if you use the PR file, which has one record per person. In the PR file, the line number is given as hvidx and hv106 does not have a subscript.
