Hello Senior,
I tried to open the zipped SPSS folders (.sav) for the 2013 NDHS datasets but only the SPSS files would open. The other distribution files (.MAP, .FRQ, .FRW) zipped along with the SPSS file did not open. When I searched online for help with opening the files, the documents couldn't be opened as the internet help engine did not know what program was used to create it. Any idea on how to get these documents opened, please? I need to see if I can find the state-level data in the files.
I am really trying to look at the raw data files specified in the list below.
