Hello,

For my project I am looking at a husband's migration across the 2006 and 2011 Nepal DHS. Is it possible to compare variables across years and test if they are significantly different? I know the PSUs and study design differ between years, so I am assuming that its not correct to do something as simple as conduct a Chi-Sq in a 2x2 tables of Year and another variable (example: Year x Sex).

How do you test if variables differ across years in a univariate analysis?

Thank you very much
Derek
