Dear Team,

Being new to the dhs program data sets, I have a few questions I would like to pose. I have searched the forum and have not found relevant answers to my questions. I am working on a Malaria project in Malawi. I am using MIS14 data sets. I have the recode manual dhs VI that I am using. However, I am finding it challenging to:

1) Link 0-59 months old children to their Malaria test results which are given by these codes (hml32, hml33 or hml 35. I cannot find these results in the data set.
2) After identifying these under fives, how do i link them to their mother's and also household characteristics?

Regards,
Onzo

Hello everyone, a few weeks ago I posted the above inquiry on the forum and I have not been able to get any guidance from the group, does anyone know how I can get the information I am looking for?

Regards,
