Dear all, I want to analyze the association between the 3 malnutrition of under 5 children statuses in Ethiopia. But I had not been using EDHS before and I felt confused about which dataset is appropriate for my analysis(maybe PR, IR, BR ), given that I wanted to take like a place of residence of mothers, child sex, mothers''''' education, pregnancy of treatment, drinking water, the presence of radio, antenatal visit, electricity, and toilet facility as the predictors. So, please help me with any suggestions on how to take the data set. Thank you very much for your kind help.

Hello,

You can use the KR file as it contains almost all the variables you mentioned for children under 5. However, if your question is related to the name of the variables you mentioned below, look for recode manuals and guide to DHS statistics: https://dhsprogram.com/Data/Guide-to-DHS-Statistics/index.cf m.
