Hi Every one, I am trying link fertility and children well being in Tanzania using Tanzania Demographic Household Survey Data for 2010. Well-being is measured by nutritional status (Height for age and weight for age) and children education. For the nutritional status my study will estimate fertility effects to the children of under five, but for the education level the study will consider children education from age 7 to 20 years. I have seen the variable of for fertility but have not been able to construct the variable for education because in the survey or data set I am just seeing education attained of the household member. Can I just assume that the household member include children ( How is it constructed). Secondly I wanted also to use variable called childhood place of residence and religion but it appears like this information was not collected is it a country specific variable?

Thanks
Robert

Yes the household members include children. If you crosstab the education variables by age, you will see the age groups for which the education variables are available (typically from age 5 or 6 onwards). If the childhood place of residence and religion are blank, then they were not collected in this survey.
