Hello! I am having trouble deciphering some of the variables in the FGC module in the EDHS 2005. There are several variables with the following names: S808$1
S808$2
S808$3
S808$4
S808$5
S808$6
S808$7
Yet are all labeled "who performed the circumcision". The same goes for "age of daughter when she was circumcised" with the following names:
S809$1
S809$2
S809$3
S809$4
S809$5
S809$6
S809$7

I don't know what this means and cannot seem to find a definition or its significance. Can someone help define these for me or let me know what is the significance of the duplicate names with the dollar sign?
I would be eternally grateful! Thank you -
