Dear Colleagues,
I am very glad to have been given the opportunity to use The Gambia HIV and household datasets for my Master's thesis. I am working on it now. However, I have some problems with regards to some variables. I observed that the variable number of wife/partner has both and female, the number of lifetime sex partners as well which I initially thought it is only for females because there are a lot of missing males. I couldn't also see these variables: the type of union whether polygynous or non-polygynous. Kindly help with how these variables were coded:
1. Number of wife/partner because I see both male and female answer this variable
2. Lifetime number of sex partners
3. Type of union not seen.
4. Age difference between partners. I have coded the husband's age minus wife/partner age variable but still, have problems with the analysis.
Your cooperation is highly solicited.
Thank you
