I am currently working on my masters capstone using the 2014 BDHS dataset, which includes Domestic Violence variables. As I look for domestic violence variables (d105a, d105b, etc.), they are nowhere to be found. I already searched for their standard recode as well (dv05a1, dv05a2, etc.). They are missing from the data set and I need these to complete capstone analysis. Can someone help me or point to how these variables can be accessed/found? I searched for all variables starting with a "d" after opening the dataset in SAS version 9.4. There are none!

Dear User, the reason you are not finding domestic variables is because in The Bangladesh DHS 2014 survey, they did not collect data on domestic violence. Please check the questionnaire which is located in the final report.
Appendix E. Check the woman's questionnaire.
