Hi,
I am working on DHS datasets where the data regarding 'Women Empowerment' are available. Here, about 6-7 indistinct variables (topics) are included in 'Women Empowerment' chapter.
I am getting confused, how to define or which variables should be regarded as 'Women Empowerment' as a whole?
I am considering: 1) Respondent's decision making autonomy, 2) Respondent's attitude towards wife beating
3) Ability towards 'negotiating sexual relationship', 4) Women's engagement in cash economy, 5) Women's control over cash earnings, 6) Owner of assets; these 6 variables individually.
Should I add any other variables for defining 'Women Empowerment'?
Or, I have made any fault in defining the term 'Women Empowerment?'

Thanks in advance.

I would like the length of time a women knows a partner for all her most recent partners. For surveys with the partnership looks this could be answered with v768a, however it is missing for most spouse and cohabiting partners. For those in their first union I can take this from years since first marriage, v512, but if they are not in their first marriage I cannot use this. When I look at the questionnaire there doesn't seem to be a skip for spouses in v768a but the information is not there in the data files.

Am I missing something?

below is a demonstration with Zimbabwe (v000==ZW5)

Looking at who last sexual partner was by time they have known them, excluding those who are married in their first union. You can see that v768a is missing for spouse and live in partner.

. tab v768a v767a if v767a!=. & v504!=1 ,m

Dear members
I have merged ETPR &ETKR files, but when I drop unmatched cases, tha result does not match with final report. When I analysed merged data with out droping unmatched cases, the result is similar to the final report & some variables are distorted(maternal variables) yielding 0 value on tabulation. So how can I treat this ptoblem?

waiting for your reply dears!

Hello everyone!!
I am doing an analysis with the cluster survey data. The normalized weight in all cluster is calculated to be 1. There is no difference in weighted and unweighted calculation. In this context, how can be analysis done? Is it a self -weighted data? I will be thankful for your help.

Hi,

I've been wondering if there is any way to match individual women on the household members dataset.

A paper based on Uganda 2016 measured the association between disability and IPV: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6466247/. As far as I know, disability questions are included in PR and IPV questions on IR datasets.

This can't be done without merging the IR and PR datasets, which renews my interest in the question about how to match the individual women on the household members dataset.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Ghose
