Thank You Dear. The information provided is very helpful and I managed following your suggestion. Thank You again.

Additional inquire: I have indicators about household knowledge of ORS usage for treating diarrhoea and Household/individual knowledge about HIV/AIDS. The full information about the indicators are the following:
1. Household knowledge about ORS for treating diarrhoea: child aged 5-14 years lives in a household where none of the women members (ages 15-49) have used ORS for treating diarrhoea or know that ORS can be used for treating diarrhoea.

2. Household/individual knowledge about HIV/AIDS: child aged 5-14 years is deprived if none of the household members has knowledge about HIV/AIDS transmission and prevention; whereas a child aged 15-17 is deprived if she/he does not have knowledge on HIV/AIDS transmission and prevention. When individual information is not available, information from adult household members is imputed. The child is deprived if she/he or none of household members: i. Has never heard about HIV/AIDS; ii. Does not know that HIV/AIDS transmission can be prevented by having sex with one partner who has no other partners or by always using condoms during sex; iii. Does not reject any of the two most common misconceptions about HIV/AIDS transmission that HIV can be spread by mosquito bites or by sharing food with an HIV-infected person; or iv. If one thinks that or doesn't know that a healthy-looking person can have HIV.

Please may you suggest the variables form DHS dataset to be used while dealing with the above indicators? Thank You in advance.
