There is a question on "reason for not using contraception" in DRC 2013-2103 DHS. I cannot figure out the skip pattern for this question. It's been asked from about 6000 women. Non-users are more than this and non-users who don't want children in next 2 years are much less than this number. The question is not in the questionnaire in the appendix of the final report ( or I could not find it!). Any ideas how I can figure out the skip pattern?
The variable names are V3A08A-Z .

Dear User,
Thank your for your post. Are you referring to Congo Democratic Republic 2013-14?

Dear User,
Take a look at Q709 in the questionnaire. This is an alpha variable with codes A - Z. In the recode, each one of these variables has been recoded to its own numeric variable with value labels: 0 No, 1 Yes, 9 Missing
 { reasons for not using a method }
    if length( strip(Q709) ) then         { if applicable }
      V3A08A  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "A" );      { not married }
      V3A08B  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "B" );      { not having sex }
      V3A08C  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "C" );      { infrequent sex }
      V3A08D  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "D" );      { menopausal/hysterctomy }
      V3A08E  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "E" );      { subfecund/infecund }
      V3A08F  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "F" );      { postpartum/amenorrheic }
      V3A08G  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "G" );      { breastfeeding }
      V3A08H  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "H" );      { fatalistic }
      V3A08I  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "I" );      { respondent opposed }
      V3A08J  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "J" );      { husband/partner opposed }
      V3A08K  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "K" );      { others opposed }
      V3A08L  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "L" );      { religious prohibition }
      V3A08M  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "M" );      { knows no method }
      V3A08N  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "N" );      { knows no source }
      V3A08O  = notappl;                       { !! health concerns, in DHS-VI joined with next variable }
      V3A08P  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "O" );      { fear of side effects/health concerns }
      V3A08Q  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "P" );      { lack of access/too far }
      V3A08R  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "Q" );      { costs too much }
      V3A08S  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "T" );      { inconvenient to use }
      V3A08T  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "U" );      { interferes with body's norma process }
      V3A08U  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "R" );      { preferred method not available }
      V3A08V  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "S" );      { no method avialble }
      V3A08W  = notappl;                       { !!CS }
      V3A08AA = notappl;                       { !!CS }
      V3A08AB = notappl;                       { !!CS }
      V3A08AC = notappl;                       { !!CS }
      V3A08AD = notappl;                       { !!CS }
      V3A08X  = alfa2num( 1, Q709, "X" );      { other }
