Dear Rafael,
Here is a response from one our experts, Dr. Shea Rutstein:
Attached is the SPSS syntax file. It is a text file and can be opened as such (Word, Wordpad, Notepad, etc.). Rafael should note the following: 1) The syntax is set for the raw data file. 2) There were two versions of the India NFHS-3 data, the difference being a couple of the smaller states were not included in the first version. The syntax attached was that run on the second version. 3) Dichotomous variables need to be constructed for all categorical variables such as water supply, type of toilet, etc.
