Hello,

My aim is to get the ownership of land by women. Question 811 asks (those women in agriculture) if she works in own land or family land, etc. However, the dataset seems to have ignored this part. The variable v716 to variable 719 are those related to occupation and it seems impossible to get the ownership data from there.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Khushbu

I am sorry, I found that variable in the dataset. I guess I wanted to check if 2006 and 2010/11 are panel in any way?

Thanks,
Khushbu

Khushbu, the final report will tell you if it's a panel or not. Generally, DHS data are NOT true panels at the individual/household levels, with very few exceptions (the only one I can think of off the top of my head is Egypt). You can make an argument for a "panel of clusters", though, if you can verify (e.g. via GIS) whether the cluster centroids are the same for both survey years, but that would mean aggregating your analysis to the cluster level and potentially losing information that way.
