Hello,

I am using the men's recode from Zimbabwe 2015 for a comparative analysis and am getting some anomalous results based on responses to mv852a, mv852b and mv852c.
There are no responses in these three variables coded in the 400s for "years".
This is unusual and seems unlikely because it suggests that all the reported partners have been acquired recently- there are a few where a number of months greater that 12 has been recorded but most partners are recorded as new in the last year, including some spouses. For example, a cross tabulation of mv852a and mv767a shows that 2552 of the 4235 partnerships with spouses are reported as having started in the last year, which is extremely high. I think all the "year" answers have been dropped into the 300s instead of the 400s - is there a way to check?
Thanks,
Emma
