Age difference_using women data only [message #24945] Sat, 06 August 2022 02:27 Go to next message

I would like to ask regarding the age difference calculation. I saw some posts that mentioned spousal age difference, but they used the couple's datasets. Any suggestion on the calculation of spousal age difference using women's dataset only?

Thank you so much.

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

In some surveys, at least, v730 "Husband/partner's age" is included in the IR file. You could use it to calculate an age difference.
