Bonjour Monsieur, Madame,

Actuellement je travaille sur les politiques vaccinales dans les PED avec les données DHS (essais de microéconométrie (données panel)).

J'ai besoin des années de mises en place des différentes campagnes vaccainles (BCG; DPT 1, 2, 3; Polio 1 , 2, 3;Measles 1 , 2...).
Le souci est que je ne sais pas comment obtenir précisement ces années de campaganes pour les phases DHS.
Je vous prie de bien vouloir m'assister (quelques pistes).

I had a couple of questions about working with the responses to "wife beating" justification questions (Question 936 in NFHS 4, women's questionnaire):

1. Missing values in NFHS 4 and 5 women's datafiles: the responses to these variables for example variable v744a have ~85% values missing whereas there were just 27 missing values in the NFHS 3 file. I wanted to understand whether these questions were not asked to all women despite the sample size increase or is there some other specific reason? Any guidance on whether we can consider them as random or not would be very helpful.

2. District level Aggregation: I want to study the responses to these questions conditional on some district level covariates given that NFHS 4 and 5 have district identifiers. However, I wanted to check if I would need to construct new weights to do so or would the individual women's weight be appropriate? In past queries, you've recommended dropping some districts that were split when comparing NFHS 4 and 5. Does this imply any adjustment to the weights afterwards?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I would like to know if the data on Hepatitis B rapid test are available? According to the Report, "... a hepatitis B test was performed among all household members age 1-59 years".

A prompt response would be greatly appreciated!

Warm regards,
