Thanks dear Economist,

how about the notion i have seen on discussions from the forum that with DHS data you can not establish causation but relationship/associations between variables? I thought this was the reason why most authors do not use marginal effects (because slopes explain causation!) for DHS data. What is your comment on this? Thanks

Gabriel
