Hi
I was working with Household Recode File of 2001 DHS (Nepal) to develop Wealth Index (WI) but could not locate variable; HV216 which is number of bed rooms in the household and another variable which answers ''Do the members of your household work in their own or family's agricultural land?''. HV216 is easily accessible in other rounds of NDHS. Please help me.
