My research involves understanding the impact of labor migration in Nepal. The module on migration in the 2006 Nepal DHS asks destination of migrants. The household recode file, however, only contains an indicator (0/1) variable for whether the destination was Nepal, India or other country. I was wondering if it is possible to get information on actual destination of "other country" international migrants.

Thank you.
