Dear User,
In order to assist you we need you to be more specific about what it is you are trying to accomplish.
The final report containing the individual questionnaire which is located in the back of the final report in Appendix F and can be downloaded from our website http:// rts.cfm Section 6. Marriage and Sexual Activity has some questions about multiple sexual partners, starting with Q616 - Q627. Section 9 HIV/AIDS contains questions about Knowledge, Attitude and Behavior. In the recode map and recode frequencies, you can look at the variables in the 800s for example V837 Total lifetime number of sex partners and other variables in this section. There are also condom questions in the recode section containing variables in the 700s for women and similar variables for the men. For additional guidance, please take a look at our Standard Recode Manual which can be downloaded http:// ires-and-Manuals.cfm This publication is bookmarked. Take a look at REC51, REC75 and REC80 for the woman, MREC51, MREC75, MREC80 for the men. In addition to these resources, we also have the Guide to DHS Statistics http:// ires-and-Manuals.cfm which will serve as a guide for replicating our tables in the final reports. We also have a section on our website called Using Datasets for Analysis it contains a lot of good information and will answer many of your questions. After looking over these resources, if you still have questions, please feel free to post again.
Thank you for your post.
