Good evening Admin,

I am a student at the University of Nottingham working on a research project looking at the prevalence of the risk factors for COPD in Nepal. My outcome measures are;
Type of cooking fuel biomass- yes or no (Created from hv226)
A new variable exposure to biomass smoke in the home was created if cooking took place in the house and biomass==1 Tab hv241 if solid==1
Exposure to tobacco smoke in the home hv252

My supervisors didn't seem to agree on whether to use the HR file or the PR file. I for one had used the PR file as I was looking at the household members exposed to the above markers of HAP.
My independent variables in this analysis include hv271(I used household wealth so that individuals from the same household get to be in the same quintile), hv104, hv105, shecoreg, hv025, hv024, and hv105.

My question is on hv105. How do I get the education level of the household head- I am trying to find out how education level of the household head affects the odds of exposure to household air pollution. I tried to use one of the ideas on the forum but got a bit confused.
Using the PR file, I did the following:
gen headed = hv106 if 101==1 (headed being the education level of the household head). This generated 11,040 which is expected.
But how do I assign this score to the different household members so that people in the same household are assigned to the same household head's education level. I hope my question makes sense.

Thanks in advance,

Hello:

I have doubts about question v717 about work of woman. What kinds of job are categorized as "skilled manual" and "unskilled manual"?
Is it possible to find in any manual of DHS? I searched at manual recode and manual map, but i did not find.
Thank you so much,
Ana Elisa

Hello,

I am trying to calculate the median birth interval using STATA from the NFHS-4. However, I am getting the wrong median compared to the report. The report says the median in India is 32 months, however, I am getting 28 months.

I am subtracting 9 months from the variable as I want birth-to-pregnancy interval, not birth-to-birth. But even if I don't subtract 9, I get different values.

use IABR74FL.dta
gen weight=v005/1000000

rename sdistri shdistri
tostring  shdistri, replace 
gen strata = shdistri
svyset v021 [pweight=weight], strata (strata)

keep shdistri v008 b3 bord b0 b11 v106 hv024 v025 v190 v447a v133 s301 hv001 hv002 hvidx v005 v021 weight strata


*Births in the month of interview are included and births 60 months before the interview are excluded.
	gen monthssncbirth=v008-b3
	replace monthssncbirth=. if monthssncbirth<=60
	drop if monthssncbirth==.
	
*First-order births (and their twins) are excluded from both numerators and denominators.	
	svy: tab bord
	gen birth_order=bord if (b0 > 1) 
	svy: tab birth_order

*subtract by 9 months to find birth-to-pregnancy interval (WHO)
	gen birth_interval=b11-9 
	replace birth_interval=. if birth_interval<0

Dear All

I am a student of Epidemiology at University of Antwerp, Belgium,

I am currently looking at DHS data for the last five survey for Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. I intend to look at the trends in vaccination uptake and determinants as proxy for assessing vaccine hesitancy in the East African region.

However, i found 2006 data for Uganda disturbing, the summary statistics for DPT are significantly different from the final report

I generated the age for children under five as follows:
gen months = v008-b3
gen agechild=.
replace agechild=1 if b5==1 & months>11 & months<24
replace agechild=2 if b5==1 & months>23 & months<36
replace agechild=3 if b5==1 & months>35 & months<=59

Please attached stata summary for DPT,

Looking forward to your timely support

Regards,

Gerald
