I am currently trying to analyze percent of children given ORS AND Zinc using DHS datasets.

I realize some reports identify ORT and Zinc, but my analysis is specifically focused on ORS and Zinc, and therefore I am trying to use DHS Stata datasets.

However, I am encountering a few issues in identifying the correct indicator
1. Which recode do we think is most appropriate here? I was trying to use Children's recode, but understand that Individual recode may be more appropriate or available
2. I have noticed that the variable h13b seems to be the indicator--but I am often trying to summarize or tabulate that data to see what it looks like, and Stata reports back this data is 0 or missing; additionally, it says h13b_1 through h13b_6 at times, and I cannot tell from the recode or the data itself what these mean. I was even using datasets like Bangladesh 2011, when I know there are many respondents using ORS.

Could you please advise what variables I should be using and the recode? Thank you very much for your time and assistance.
