Dear Bridgette, Ladys and Albert,

Thank you so much for your time and help. We greatly appreciate your kind effort.
We are very close to clarify this issue completely. I just need your help and expertise on one last thing. (at least for this project :))

Yesterday, Ladys confirmed that a child's day of birth (b17 or hw16) and month of birth (b1) are reported in Gregorian Calendar while the year of birth (b2) is reported in Ethiopian Calendar in 2016 survey data.

Today, Albert confirmed that a child's day (hw16), month (b1) and year (b2) of birth are all reported in the same way and in Ethiopian Calendar in 2000 and 2005 survey data.

If somebody can confirm the way these variables (i.e. hw16, b1, b2) are reported in 2011 survey data, we would be able to solve the problem completely.

I think, in 2011 these variables are reported as they are reported in 2016 (i.e. hw16 and b1 in Gregorian Calendar and b2 in Ethiopian Calendar) because of the reasons that I mentioned in previous posts. However, I would really appreciate a confirmation from you on this matter.

Once again, thank you very much.

Regards,

Koray
