Hello,

I am having a hard time finding the longitude and latitude coordinates matching the cluster numbers for Uganda 2016. Can someone please direct me to the correct dataset? Is there an Excel-file containing this information, or do I need to look at the cpg, dbf, prj and so on file-types?

Best regards,

Dear DHS forum,

i am using Ethiopia DHS women data 2011.

I have red that health service variables such as ANC, TT vaccine, and mode of delivery are only for most recent live birth five years preceeding the survey. However, when i crosstab, stillbirth with these variables, i can see limited cases of stillbirth that have information on health service variables such as ANC, TT vaccine, and mode of delivery. Can anyone from expert group explain if the dhs collect health service information for stillbirth or why i am getting some stillbirth cases that has health service information.

Thank you

Sammy

In the children's recode file, there are approximately 5,000 children, but only 2,379 had height/weight measurements taken. In looking at the DHS 7 recode manual, it appears that all children under 5 should have had anthropometric measurements taken. Is there a reason why many of the children were not measured?

Thanks!

Hello,

I'm using the NFHS data for the very first time and I need to use all the 4 rounds for my research. Since, I'm new to the data, I'm having a little trouble handling the data. So, I need to first sort the data using the districts and then merge the data according to the districts.I have downloaded the STATA version of all the 4 rounds.
Are the district indicator variable the same in all the datasets? If not, then can someone kindly tell me which dataset I should look at for the district indicator for each round?

As soon as I figure this out, I will ask the further queries that I have.

I have successfully merged it but the problem is the household recode file, is split over 48 variables all my variables of interest has 48 values for example hv106_01 until hv106_48. do i need to use PR file instead or How exactly should I merge these files?

best regards
