Good day,

I am currently working on the Turkey DHS 2013 TRIR62FL.DTA Dataset.

However, I am confused as to why does one variable have multiple columns or cases

For eg: s439b_1 , s439b_2 , s439b_3 , s439b_4 , s439b_5 , s439b_6 (test for hearing)

If one row belongs to one woman (each unique ID) I was confused as to why are there multiple cases/columns to one variable. The total observations for each case of the variable decreases as you go from s439b_1 to s439b_6.
Do let me know your thoughts.
