I'm using the 2017 Ghana Maternal Health Survey, how can I limit my sample to the number of individual pregnancies within the five period preceding the survey. My focus of analysis is individual women who reported pregnancies within the five-year period and not on the pregnancy history.
Thank you.

Dear DHS specialist,

I am working on a thesis on the topic of teenage pregnancy and I use multilevel analysis. The data that I use is Indonesian data for 2017.
I want to make a variable of poverty level and education level of women at the community/cluster level. All I know from from DHS forum these variables can be created by aggregating individual values into community/cluster values. My question is what variable is the best to use?
1. For community education/cluster level variables is it appropriate to use v106?
2. For the community/cluster poverty variable, which variable i should use V190 or v191?

Could You kindly help me.

Best regards,

FajarSan

I am looking at the 2012 Senegal data and trying to summarize various indicator variables by the 14 regions. I see that hv023 (Stratification used in sample design), hv102, hv024 list these 14 regions. However, the 2012 report summarizes data by 4 regions (centre, nord, ouest, and sud), and the spatial repository also only includes data summarized to these four features. Would it be appropriate for me to summarize variables by the 14 regions? Thank you for your help.

Dear all,

I want to estimate child development indicators using DHS 2017 Benin, however, my denominator (variable b19 = 36 to 59) is 4415 children, much higher than the published in table 18.12.
I tried to restrict the denominator to only one child age 36-59 months in households with more than one child at this age, but the number still higher than 4000.
I also tried to reestimate the current age of the child in months, and matches with b19 - so it seems that it is no problem there.

Is there another restriction?


Thanks in advance,

Hello,

My group and I are trying to replicate the results published in Table 10.7 of Turkey 2013 Report.
We are using variable m51, restricting to values 100 to 148, 201 and 202 (postnatal care in the first two days of birth).
However, our estimate has a huge diference in relation to the published one.

We tryied to estimate it considering the last birth in the five years preceding the survey, to replicate the published estimative, but the result was 52.8% (N=2,603).

Using the standard definition, considering women age 15-49 giving birth in the last two years preceding the survey, result was 54.8% (N=1,227).

What can we be considering different from Turkey 2013 report?

Thanks in advance,

Hi, I am trying to analyze the rates of cesarean section by different religions in Indonesia using 2017 data-set. From the recode manual I found that v130 is the variable for religion, however there is no observation exists on this variable. I am wondering if something is wrong with my data-set or Indonesia did not capture the religion data in 2017?

Thank you

I am working on Sri Lanka DHS. Could somebody help me to make Minimum Dietary Diversity Score, please? I was able to make the variable "consumed 4+
food groups" matched with the report, but not with this. Thanks

Dear DHS,

I am working with file KEIR72FL and I see calendar data (vcal_1 and vcal_2) was only collected for 47% of women. Why is that? This means not every birth is recorded on vcal_1 so I cannot compute TFR from it?

Also, 52% of births in the previous 36 months to the date of interview do not include information on M10 nor V367. If I want to compute the proportion of unwanted pregnancies, should I reweight the sample? Please, help me out!

Thanks in advance.


Best regards,

David A. Sanchez P.
