Good day, everyone!
We would like to work with the child labor variables in the DHS data and we have searched the information using the survey search at

According to the search results, the child labor variables should be available for a 41 countries and a number of phase releases (eg Albania, Angola, Bangladesh, etc).
We have inspected PR datasets downloaded from the DHS website for all countries and we can only find information on child labor in the following countries: Senegal; Niger; Benin; Cote d'Ivoire; Guinea; Haiti; ; Liberia; Mali; Sierra Leone.

Further, in these countries the variables are only available for the most recent years.

Could anyone help us to understand why we see this discrepancy? Maybe it is possible to find the child labor variables for all countries in other data files? Or is there another way to access the data?

Many thanks
Olena Stavrunova
