Hi, I am using the 2019 determinants of child obesity and overweight among under five children in Sierra Leone data set. However, I am having trouble finding the following variables of interests in the data set: maternal age, wealth index, handwashing observed, and birth registration of children under 5. Does anyone have any insight into these dataset variables.

Following is a response from DHS staff member, Tom Pullum:

I'm not sure why you attached that Excel file, or what data file(s) you are using, or what statistical package. Are you trying to match a table in the final report in this survey? There is a lot of related information on the website, including the Guide to DHS Statistics and other posts on the forum. Perhaps other users can help.
