Dear Shireen,

Thank you so much. It means a lot.

Temporarily, I skipped the children analysis and now I am being specific to the analysis related to women. In the women's file, I would like to ask if you can provide me the columns or indicator responsible for the following two issues only.


1. Body mass index for currently married women.
2. Food insecurity level.

Following (Abhishek Singh et al, 2014), to construct the food insecurity level the following questions should be answered, if I can get the answers in a table format, I can calculate the food insecurity level.
A. In the past 12 months, how frequently did you worry that your household would not have enough food?
B. In the past 12 months, how often were you or any household member not able to eat the kinds of foods you preferred because of a lack of resources?
C. In the past 12 months, how often did you or any household member have to eat a limited variety of foods due to lack of resources?
D. In the past 12 months, how often did you or any household member have to eat a smaller meal than you felt you needed because there was not enough food?
E. In the past 12 months, how often did you or any household member eat fewer meals in a day because of lack of resources to get food?
F. In the past 12 months, how often was there no food to eat of any kind in your household because of lack of resources to get food?
G. In the past 12 months, how often did you or any household member go to sleep at night hungry because there was not enough food?

Can you extend your help, please? I wanted them in a table form so that I can directly go to analyze them.
Best
Elsa
