Dear User, Please take a look at The Standard Recode Manual http:// www.dhsprogram.com/publications/publication-dhsg4-dhs-questi onnaires-and-manuals.cfm
It has a description of the variables you are looking at and will give you useful information on how to interpret them. You may also want to download The Guide to DHS Statistics http:// www.dhsprogram.com/publications/publication-dhsg1-dhs-questi onnaires-and-manuals.cfm
The Guide provides the following:
Quote:

1. To provide an overview on key aspects of the organization and use of DHS data sets
2. To serve as a reference document for researchers on the definitions and calculation of
complex statistics used in DHS reports


We also have a section on our website with useful information on Using Data for Analysis http://www.dhsprogram.com/data/Using-Datasets-for-Analysis.cfm
After reviewing these items, if you still have specific questions, please feel free to post again.
