In the Nepal DHS 2016 Table 10.5, there is an ARI variable that must have been created from Q620 cough, Q621 rapid breathing and Q622 chest/nose. I want to use the ARI variable, but I can't find the created variable in the dataset. Can you tell me if it is somewhere in the dataset, or do I have to create it myself. If I have to create it, can you tell me how it was done, so that my variable and analysis is consistent with the DHSs. Many thanks.

Dear User, you need to look at the following variables: H31, H31B and H31C
Below is the recode code in CSPRO for these variables: The text within brackets, indicates a comment.
 { Cough in last 2 weeks }
          box Q620 => H31(i);
                1  => 2;
                2  => 0;
                   => Q620;
          endbox;

          { Faster breathing with short, rapid breaths }
          H31B(i) = YesNo( Q621 );
          { Problem in the chest or blocked or running nose }
          H31C(i)  = Q622;
          { Had fever/cough in last 2 weeks: Amount offered to drink }
          H31D(i) = notappl;  { !!! may be included in survey, not in DHS-VII }
          { Had fever/cough in last 2 weeks: Amount offered to eat }
          H31E(i) = notappl;  { !!! may be included in survey, not in DHS-VII }
