I am new here. I am not sure of which DHS file to use(I guess the PR is appropriate) for these variables and the corresponding recode:
Categorical covariates:
1. Sex (male or female)
2. BCG vaccination (yes or no)
3. Exclusively Breastfed (yes or no)
4. Pneumococcal vaccination (none, incomplete, complete)
5. Rotavirus vaccination
6. Diarrhea
7. Any insurance coverage (yes or no)
8. Education level of the mother (none or primary, high school, college or university)
9. Source of drinking water (piped, well or surface, bottled, other)
10. Type of toilet facility (flush toilet, latrine, without installation)

Quantitative covariates:
