I have used the API to extract information on childhood illness - % children with ARI, Fever and Diarrhea, and % of children treated for the same.

I get 2 values for each survey/indicator/group combination. For example, in the Yemen 2013 survey, for % of children not treated for diarrhea, there are 2 values returned for each wealth quintile.

When referring to the original data, it appears that these 2 values correspond to children born in the past 3 years, and those born in the past 5 years. However, there is no way to distinguish or label this information in the dataset.

Do you have any suggestions for how to CONSISTENTLY capture only 1 of these 2 values for each country and indicator of interest? In other words, I want to be sure that I only keep the values corresponding to children born in the past 5 years.

Thank you
