DHS Questionnaire questions --> Indicators on STATCompiler? [message #21716] Sat, 12 December 2020 03:47 Go to next message

For my work project I have compiled together a set of specific questions from the Woman's and Man's questionnaires as well as the domestic violence module. I am now using STATCompiler to gather the data from 6 specific countries for these questions but am having a little trouble finding the exact indicators from the list provided that translate to the questions as stated in the questionnaire. Is there a reference guide that exists somewhere to translate the questions from the questionnaire directly into the indicators found on STATCompiler?

Thanks in advance!

Following is a response from Senior DHS Specialist, Trevor Croft:

There is no direct mapping to the indicators from the questions. However, the Guide to DHS Statistics explains which recode variables are used to create the indicators, and there is a mapping from the questionnaires to the recode file variables in the final section of the DHS VII Recode Manual.
