Good afternoon,

I am trying to understand the number of women's partners who were not in the household at the time of the women's interview as a proportion of women who declare to be cohabiting/married. v034 has an option of 0: husband not in the household). If a man is not in the household, does this mean that he did not participate in the male DHS survey? Essentially, would I be able to look at any data from men who "are not in the household"? (v034 = 0). I assume not, but I wanted to check.

Thank you in advance.
