Hi, I am looking for the variables that capture questions 411 to 413 ( i.e if a respondent has seen or heard a message about malaria in the last four weeks before the survey, the source of the message, and the type of message that was seen or heard)in the 2010 Malaria Indicator Survey for Nigeria. I am working with the Women data set and and using the DHS RecodeIV. I cant find the variables for these questions. What I have seen however, is the variables for the frequency of exposure to TV, radio and news papers.
Thank you

Dear User,
These variables are country specific.
Q411 = S411; is a single numeric variable.
Q412 and Q413 are alphanumeric and recoded as numeric single variables to capture all the information from the alphanumeric variables.
For example: for Q412 there would be 13 separate variables as S412A - S412K, S412X, S412Z
for Q413 there would be 14 separate variables as S413A - S413M, S413X
These variables start with an "S". Hope this helps.
Thank you!
