Dear DHS exoerts,

I have to produce descriptive statistics on child labour and the questionnaire on child labor has been proposed to half of the sample, how should I rearrange the weight hv005 in order to have reliable absolute numbers (or proportions) for age groups or gender ?

Furthermore, it seems to me that the questionaire had to be proposed to one children per household according to the explanatory documents, but from the data (CDPR60FL.DAT) all the children in the household answer to the questions on child labour. Can you clarify this doubt?

Thanks,

The weight variable for child labor is missing in the recode data. We'll make the necessary corrections, and release a new version of the data in the next month or two.
