2014 Kenya long vs short-form questionnaire [message #12162] Tue, 04 April 2017 06:08 Go to next message

According to the 2014 Kenya DHS report, half of the sampled households received the full Household and Woman's Questionnaire and the other half received a short version of the two questionnaires. Is there a variable in the dataset (I'm working with the women's recode) to identify which sample the respondent was in?

I'm currently using s101d (nationality) to determine which respondents were asked the full questionnaire, but it would be helpful to be able to distinguish between missingness due to the woman not being asked the question and 'true missingness'.

Thank you!

Following is a response from Senior DHS Specialist, Ladys Ortiz:

There is a variable at the household level (HV027) that can be used to select the long or short questionnaires subsamples. You will probably need to merge the household's variables to the women's in order to use it.
