Hello

I am now working with the 2016 EDHS survey.
I understand from the thread above that b1 (birth month) is in the Gregorian calendar,
but b2 (birth year) is still in the Ethiopian calendar.

I also understand that for this survey, because day of birth has also been collected, a fairly accurate conversion can be done.

How can I get an accurate Gregorian birth year (b2) in the 2016 survey?

(I have tried Tom Pullum's method for 2011, but then I realised it might not work for 2016.)

Thanks
Sandra
