Only standard variables are described in the standard recode manual. The variable: SDIST is country specific, and you will have to reference the questionnaires in the appendix of the final reports, to get more information on such quewstions. SDIST is coded from "District" which is on the cover page of the Woman's questionnaire.

For country specific questions, the variables are generally named and coded in the same way as they were on the questionnaire. The variable will have a leading "SH" if the question was asked at the household level, a leading "S" if asked at the women's level, and a leading "SM" if asked at the men's level.
