Dear DHS users,

I am using Burundi DHS-2010 and my interest is in timely & completion ANC. I apply for the Dataset from DHS Program and got, however, some variables of interest especially the dependent variables and some explanatory variables are missing as shown below.

My outcome of interest (coded "m13_1 to 6: timing of 1st antenatal check (month) and m14_1 to 6": number of antenatal visits during pregnancy ) are missing in the IR dataset yet they exist in the Women questionnaire and codebook. Also other variables of interest like distance to health facility, health insurance status, marital status, pregnancy wanted, complication's pregnancy, frequency for radio, TV and news are also missing. I kindly ask you for your advise for which Dataset to use or how to get a new Dataset which have those variables.


Best regards.

When I look at my copy of the datasets I see most of the variables you mention e.g.
. summ m13_1

    Variable |        Obs        Mean    Std. Dev.       Min        Max
-------------+---------------------------------------------------------
       m13_1 |      4,865     5.14964    6.003649          0         99
Perhaps you have accidentally subsetted your dataset and dropped some variables?
I'm using BUIR61DT.ZIP [BUIR61FL.dta inside the zip file] - I assume you are using Stata.
I suggest downloading the dataset again to be sure.
