Hello,

I am using SAS version 9.4 to analyze the 2007 BDHS dataset. I am trying to figure out what the responses for "type of place of residence" (variable V025) in the IR file mean. More specifically, how do I know what "1" or "2" are categorized as (urban or rural?). The 2007 BDHS final report, appendix and Guide to Statistics do not specify the "1" or "2". Also, for the "wealth status" (variable v190) in the IR file for 2007 BDHS, I am not sure what the 1, 2, 3,4, 5 are categorized as either.
