A follow-up question about the dates in the 2011 survey (specifically the children's recode): variable h9d (day of month of measles vaccination, if known) takes on values from 1 to 31. However, my understanding is that all of the dates are in the Ethiopian calendar, which should have 12 months of 30 days + one month of 5 or 6 days. I'm unclear on how to use h9d values of 31 since it is not in the Ethiopian calendar, and am thus not able to convert the three variables h9y-h9m-h9d to Gregorian dates.

Thanks for your help!
