Dear DHS STATA crowd,|
I wish to analyze the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) data on children under five.
I have set up my analysis as follows, using at Tanzania DHS 2010 as a starting point.
But I have two questions:
1. Why do I have 8,023 cases not the 8,081 that the report (the report and dataset are available at http://www.measuredhs.com/what-we-do/survey/survey-display-3 45.cfm) says exit?
2. How do I restrict the analysis to V465, which was a question asked only of respondents with a youngest child under five living with them?
Probably simple questions, sorry, but my STATA mind needs jogging!
set mem 450m
set matsize 800
*v022 is sample stratum number
gen stratid = v022
*v021 is PSU
gen psu = v021
*v005 is sample weight
gen weight = v005/1000000
svyset psu [pw=weight], strata(stratid)
*Just to compare totals. Should get 8,081 for Tanzania DHS 2010 not 8,023!
*keep if complete response
keep if v015==1
*keep if child lives with respondent. But this command isn't recognized!
keep if B9==0
