hi
I am trying to calculate anemia among adult men and women. I am using NFHS dataset (India) for 2015-16 and 1998-99. In doing so (for 2015-16), I used household member file and tried to calculate the statistic separately for men and women. It's ironic that my results match with the report for women, but not for men.
I used the variable HB57 and HA57 from the household member file and have used weights too. I even tried with both, household weights and men's sub-sample weights but none worked.
Data on men's anemia level isn't given in any other file, not even in men's file. I couldn't figure what I am doing wrong.
Can you please help.
