Dear DHS Representative,

Today in a discussion of my thesis committee it was suggested that I must also look for the variable "Place of Death" whether neonate died at home or in a health facility.

I make the search for this variable in BR-file (Pakistan DHS 2017-18) using stata 13.1 (command; lookfor place), a list of variables opened but there was no information on the place of death.

I would like to make a request to the DHS team that kindly include the question about the place of death of a child/neonate since this information is critical & crucial for evaluating the functionality of the health system and health-seeking behavior of the population, especially for the low-middle income countries.

Best Regards

Dr. Hussain
