Dear Team,
I am using data for Uganda Demographic & Health Survey (UDHS)-2011 to assess the determinants of the under-five child health in Uganda. Vitamin A status for children under five years is one of the key variables in this research. i downloaded datasets and ran frequency for variable SWVAD both in BR and KR but output table shows missing value for all 7878 children. this is the same for the already provided for output tables in the .map or .frq files.
May you please help me on how i can obtain data on vitamin A for children under five such that i am able to run the regressions and frequencies of interest in this research.
i will be very grateful of your response
yours faithfully

Dear User,
The country specific variables having to do with Vitamin testing are:

SH211B: consent vitamin A testing
SH211C: combination of consent statements
SH213: bar code vitamin A
SHCVAR: Vitamin A Results

If this does not answer your query, please feel free to post again.
Thank you!
