Hi,

Scrutinizing the questionnaire in DHS Haiti 2012, I found a filter in the question #434 that seems like an error. I found that for the last child, the filter conduces to the 448th question when for the others children, in the same question, the filter goes to the 438th question. In the core questionnaire (that I upload here) the filter is the same for all children.

So, I would like to know if this filter was an error in DHS-2012 Haiti or it is a logical filter. If it's not an error, I would like to know how you can help me find data related to these question for home delivery

1. How long after discharge/delivery at homerespondent health check took place?
2. Who checked respondent health after discharge/delivery at home?

Than for your answer that surely would help me keep moving forward on my analyze.
I have to do the same analyze with DHS 2016, hope I can find these data more easily.

Dear User,
The filter in the questionnaire for column 1 of Q434 is a typo. If the response is 11 and 12 it should skip to Q438 not Q448. I looked at the entry application and it is executed properly. It's just a typo in the questionnaire.

For the variables you mention:
1. How long after discharge/delivery at home respondent health check took place? Q440 in the questionnaire is numbered incorrectly and should be Q439. The variable in the recode file is M51.
2. Who checked respondent health after discharge/delivery at home? Q439 in the questionnaire is numbered incorrectly and should be Q440. The variable in the recode file is M52.

Thank you for your post.
