I am currently dealing with DHS standard data sets of following surveys

1. Afghanistan 2015

2. India 2016

3. Maldives 2016

4. Nepal 2016

5. Pakistan 2018

I have gone through the DHS contraceptive calendar tutorial and have successfully created the event file as well. I am just confused regarding the coding of vcal_1 and vcal_2. Although it is given in the tutorial that what does each code stands for. But there are some survey specific codes too and I dont know what do they stand for. From where I can get this information?

Secondly, as I am dealing with different countries so is there any other important difference in coding of vcal_1 and vcal_2 that I need to be careful about?

Would be grateful if you can guide me on this.
