The HIV testing variables in the 2018 Standard DHS for Nigeria are all blank. We could find the data in 2013 DHS datafile. Why are these variables blank? Is there a way for us to request this data from DHS? Or is there another datafile that includes these variables?

Here is the list of variables we are interested:

V781 Ever been tested for HIV

V826 Last time tested for HIV

V826A Months ago most recent HIV test

V827 Last HIV test: on your own, offered or required.

There are other variables that are also blank in 2018 Standard DHS such as V763D-G and D101F-G. The variable labels in SPSS have NA before them. What does NA mean?

Thank you!
