Dear Sir,

Please i am using the children's file on Ghana DHS 2014 and i treated all do not know responses as missing values.

However when i compare the percentages for all the immunization variables i see a difference between them and those reported in the 2014 Ghana DHS Whether using key indicators or full report.

The same applies to variables like vitamin A, iron supplements,Deworming and ITN, health provider or facility as a first source of care for fevers and health status variables like fever, cough. For Anemia i think i understand because i was told the variable in the report is from the household data and not kr.

Best regards,

Mustapha Immurana
