Dear User,
Country specific variables are assigned when something in the survey's questionnaire is non-standard from our model questionnaire and cannot be recoded into one of our existing recode variables. Country specific variables will be coded starting with the letter "S" and usually will match question number used in the questionnaire. However, for Ethiopia DHS 2011, there is no country specific variable for QH122C in the household questionnaire. Camels is one of the categories here and is coded as follows in the recode application:
HV246G = NAToZero( QH122C ); { camels }


The variable you want to look at if you are looking for camels is HV246G.
Thank you for your post.
