I am working with a "other biomaker" dataset from Malawi and have come across some variables which were recoded to "M102" "M103" etc I cannot find the descriptions of these codes in the recode manual. Secondly, some variable responses are recoded to "0" and "1" or "1" and "2" which may mean "yes" or "no" or "morning" and "afternoon" based on the question, however, I can not find information on which response means which word. This is also not in the recode manual

Does anyone have an idea how to get this information?

Dear User, which Malawi survey are you using for analysis? You can look at your frequencies, dictionary, questionnaire and recode manual to see how these variables are coded. Thank you!
