Hello,
Can anyone please help me know in which file (eg: Household recode) I can get access to the slum data? I want it for all the three rounds of NFHS (1,2, and 3). Also, I am finding it difficult to open the downloaded data in SPSS and stata format. How should one proceed to open the dataset? Please do let me know.
Thank you.

Dear User,
We have a series of YouTube videos which will visually aid you in the downloading of the data.
Part I: Registering for DHS Datasets: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBKpudtrv4E

NFHS-1 had no data on slums. NFHS-2 only had data on slums in Mumbai. NFHS-3 had data on slums in eight cities (Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad, Nagpur, Indore, and Meerut)
For NFHS-3
SHSLUMC Slum designation by census (used in survey sample) household
SHSLUMS Slum designation by supervisor (observed during fieldwork) household
SSLUMC Slum designation by census (used in survey sample) individual woman
SSLUMS Slum designation by supervisor (observed during fieldwork) individual woman
SMSLUMC Slum designation by census (used in survey sample) individual man
SMSLUMS Slum designation by supervisor (observed during fieldwork) individual man

You will need to look at your questionnaires contained in the appendix of the final reports and also work with the Standard Recode Manual http:// www.dhsprogram.com/publications/publication-DHSG4-DHS-Questi onnaires-and-Manuals.cfm



Thank you!
