Hello,
I was also unable to find variables that capture TB infection or results for children to aid the estimation of childhood TB incidence.
I am looking at DHS 2013 and 2018 for Nigeria. Please I need help to identify datasets and variables that tracks this data. I have searched all through and could not find. Please I need help around this. Thank you.

Cheers,
Placid.

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.
