hello all
I want to work with hypertension (measurements of blood pressure) from Kyrgyz DHS 2012. I already downloaded all of the data sets. i was unable to find the variables for systolic and diastolic blood pressure measurements for both male and female.
Can anybody help me to identify those variables from Kyrgyz DHS 2012.

Thank you

regards
Shafiur

Dear User,
The blood pressure measurement variables are country specific variables. However, they can be easily found by checking the map file, which was distributed with your downloaded dataset. All country specific variables begin with the letter "S" and usually are named similarly to the variable in the raw data (or your questionnaire). For example: Q101ESN is country specific variable S101ES in the recoded data file. This is the variable for the systolic measurement. Below are the variables for the women and men indicating the systolic and diastolic.

Blood pressure was measured several times during the interview:

Women
S101ES = Q101ESN; systolic
S101ED = Q101EDN; diastolic
S564S = Q564SN; systolic
S564D = Q564DN; diastolic
S1027S = Q1027SN; systolic
S1027D = Q1027SN; diastolic

Men
SM101ES = QM101ESN; systolic
SM101ED = QM101EDN; diastolic
SM442S = QM442SN; systolic
SM442D = QM442DN; diastolic
SM831S = QM831SN; systolic
SM831D = QM831SN; diastolic

If you have additional questions, please feel free to post again.
Thank you!
