in my analysis of Rwanda and Kenya (2015 and 2020) I´m trying to assess associations between health seeking behavior and bed net use (HV227) as well as ITN use (HML10) but I cannot find the exact question related to the HML10 variable, plus I have more than 50% missings in this variable. Can you please help me on that?

Thank you in advance for your help,

Following is a response from DHS Lead Malaria Research Analyst, Cameron Taylor:

Dear User
Thank you for reaching out. In looking at your question it seems that you are using the PR file. The unit of analysis for the PR file is people. So each row is a person.

The 53.75% (missing) are people that are not in a house with a bed net. The "no, don't know" are people living in households with non-treated nets/don't know if they nets are treated (see questionnaire options 96 and 98).

I hope this answers your question. If you don't want "people" as your unit of analysis, below are some YouTube videos that might be of assistance.
