Can you please explain:
1. what the wealth index factor score (5 decimals) v191 means?

2. how is it used to categorize wealth quintiles?

This information will help me in analyzing datasets from Nepal DHS 2006, 2011 and 2016.

Many thanks in advance!

I am working on creating a rudimentary measure of "urbanization" for urban areas (using the partner's occupation since that is available across all phases). I could simply do this by PSU, but I would prefer to do it at the city level to get a less noisy measure. Is there a way to identify households that live in the same urban area that I can apply across many countries and phases? I would rather not do 286 surveys by hand ;-).

Please I have a question about the coding of the occupation grouped variable v717. Some of the countries have this variable with a value of 99 or 95. For example Nigeria2013, Nigeria2008, Ghana2008, Kenya2008 all have values of 99 for this variable and Kenya2008 also have a value of 95 for this variable. However, I cannot seem to find the labels for these values(99 or 95). Please what are the labels for these values? Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Abraham

I'm analysing DHS data on prevalence of anemia and associated factors at regional level based on DHS data.so is there a need to extract all variables from the DHS data set? or can I recode there at the data set and analysing it using either do file or command window?
tnx all dear!
