Dear DHS Program|
I am working on female genital mutilation in Nigeria using the Nigeria DHS 2018 data set (NGBR7AFL.DTA).
I encountered problems when key variables on types of circumcision performed on daughters returned "no observations".
The variables in this category are listed as follows:
g110 (flesh removed from genital area of daughter?)
g111 (genital area of daughter just nicked without removing flesh?)
g112 (genital area of daughter sewn closed:
g116 (intends to have daughter circumcised in the future?
I also encountered the same problem of "no observations" for variables on respondents' perceived benefits of female circumcision. The variables and their descriptions are as listed below:
RESPONDENTS PERCEIVED BENEFITS OF FGM (Variables returning "no observations"):
g117a (cleanliness/hygiene female circumcision benefit.
g117b (social acceptance of female circumcision benefit)
g117c (better marriage prospects)
g117d (virginity/prevents premarital sex)
g117e (greater sexual pleasure for male)
g117f (religious approval)
g117g, g117h, g117i, g117j, g117x (female circumcision benefits)
g117y (no female circumcision benefit)
I need clarifications on where and how I can access these data, please.
Thank you for your quick response.
