Dear all,

I'm a bachelor student working on a research project where I investigate the possible linkage between frequent exposure to mass media (stratified for television, radio and print media) and individual attitudes on intimate partner violence against women (IPVAW) in India. Using a binary logistic regression analysis, I'll control for a handful of confounding variables such as age, employment, education,...

Based on my readings of the DHS documentation, I'd be using the 'Couples' Recode' for the analysis. However, I'm still somewhat in doubt.... I know this recode is using the couple as the standard unit of analysis and is based on the merging of men and women from respectively the 'Men's Recode' and the 'Individual Recode'. A horizontal line in the dataset is a case (= couple) where for ex. variable V744A gives information about the wife and MV744A gives information about the husband. Is this interpretation correct?

A second question is whether there exists a variable where men are asked the question whether their father ever beat their mother? This question is asked in the domestic violence module for women, however, I can't find a similar question for men in the DHS-VII Recode Manual, however I know that this question must exist.

Kind regards,
Zoƫ C.
