Hello, i am currently doing my master's thesis on the determinants of seeking help behaviour of the victims of domestic violence. My dependant variable is hence "sought help". However, after opening the data i saw that seeking help is divided between the people from whom help is thought and that there is no single variable that presents yes for seeking help or no for not seeking help. Is there a way i could make a single variable for sought help regardless from who it is sought?
Also, is the baseline for seeking help to stop violence the same in all the countries in which DHS included a domestic violence section?
