I observed hat malaria results were blank in Nigeria DHS 2013 data but available in DHS 2018 results. I am comparing two years. Please
The variables are:

Final result of malaria from blood smear test- (HML32) blank in DHS 2013
-NA - Result of malaria rapid test (HML35) blank in DHS 2013

I am looking for some kind of assistance to access this data. Thank you.

Kind Regards,

A good resource is the IPUMS-DHS site, which allows users to do a web-based search on a string or variable. If you click on the variable name, you can learn more about the variable, including its codes and frequencies, meaning, universe (who was asked the question), and question wording. Easily log in with your DHS user name email and password.

You should also check the questionnaires in the appendix of the final report, to see if the information you are looking for was collected.
