I am interested in looking at cervical cancer and HIV in Gabon. I see eight questions on the IR dataset on cancer: s1327,s1326,s1328,s1316,s1329,s1324,s1323, and s1315. I have checked the dhsVII and the corresponding recode manual, and I do not see the survey questions used to collect the data. any help to locate these would be highly appreciated.

I am new to NFHS data as well as STATA. I am trying to understand the association of socio-demographic factors with childhood immunization status (which in my case is a categorical outcome with 3 categories). I am using multinomial logistic regression on STATA using the following code :
mlogit vacc_status( i.birth_order) (i.Wealth i.religion i.caste i.household_size i.v106) (i.media_exposure i.age_firstbirth )

I have recoded the variables for better identification. I wanted to know if I need to use the "svyset linearized" everytime I run my regression on STATA, and also whether I am doing it correctly.

Thanks in advance !

The variables connected to stunting all appear to be missing all values in the 2022 PHL dataset.
I'm using the Household Members folder and looking for relevant variable - they are all there, but empty. Was there an issue during data collection, or am I doing something wrong here? I've checked the other data files from this survey too and same issue for relevant variables.
