When looking at the 2014 Bangladesh SPA survey, there appears to be data in the raw data file for "IMPAC guidelines at the facility" however in there is no data for the variable in the recoded dataset. We are wondering if it was dropped for a reasons? Or whether it was recoded in a different way? and if not, how could we go about getting the data into the recoded dataset?

Hi Shannon,
In the three SPA surveys you posted about (Tanzania 2014, Bangladesh 2014, and Nepal 2015), in the recode file, the impac guidelines were recoded as the BEmOC guidelines, so q1605/1606 in the raw data file should correspond with v537e in the recode file.
