The Kenya DHS 2014 asks the question " Who slept under this mosquito net last night?". When i look for that variable in the dataset, i find it to be hmla to hmle. However, i do not understand what these variables or entries signify. For example,in the dataset, the total number of nets a household is reported to have are 7 and the mosquito nets are reported upto to the 7th in the dataset. Therefore: If I try to interpret the hmla variable as the mosquito net number, it not does not run upto hmlg to signify 7 mosquito nets. How best do I undertand the coding of this variable?
