Dear User,
I started looking at your spreadsheet and looked at Niger (NI6), I am assuming you are looking at Niger DHS 2012. In this case code 31 for V116 is "No facility/bush/field." Looking at the frequencies, V116 weighted is 7,766 and V116 unweighted is 6,812. Are we looking at the same data set? I am looking at the Niger DHS 2012 survey.
I found this information by looking at MAP file distributed with the data set. Where did you get your number of 8502?
The recode application for Niger DHS 2012 recoded as follows:
box QH107 => HV205;
11-19 => QH107; { flush toliet }
21-29 => QH107; { pit latrine }
41 => 42; { bucket }
61 => 31; { no facility/bush/field }
=> QH107;
endbox;

Later in the application:
V116 = HV205; { Type of toilet facility }

This should help.

Also not sure where you are getting "composting toilet"

Thank you!
