Dear User, the range for the ML1 variable is 0 to 97. Check your frequencies. If you see values that high in the frequencies, that is what is in the data. That is how the respondent responded. This link also provides Stata code for DHS indicators. Thank you!

Hi Liz, the hv012 and hv013: defacto and dejure households individual are the same in the 18/19 Uganda data.
Is it possible? I'm trying to replicate the table 2.4 of the report and its not the same values for dejure and defacto!
Thanks for your answers ))
