Hi all,

I've been recently working with DHS data on malaria prevalence related questions. I noticed that CD and MD state they collected RT-PCR (DBS) data but can not find a reference toward the variable name.

I currently use the api with an R package that states the tag (96) for those surveys but then can't find the corresponding variable label. Similarly IPUMS does not find a reference toward PCR or DBS and there is no mention of it in the recode manuals. It is mentioned on the survey website online though.

Any resources I am missing?

Affects these surveys: CD_2013; MD_2013; MD_2016

Thanks ahead,

/edit: Changed Côte d'Ivoire in title and text to DRC because CD ist DRC and not CDI.
