Hi, I am new in using DHS dataset. Actually, I am doing a trend analysis in stunting using four dataset of Nepal. What I am confused is, I could see there are number of variables representing same variable like HC4$1 HC4$2 HC4$3 HC4$4 .... for height for age percentile. similarly, there are six variable for "height of children taken lying or standing" HC15$1 HC15$2 to HC15$6 in NDHS 2011. Both are not multiple response. In this case, how to identify which one to use for analysis.

When I checked data manual, it only explains about the meaning of variable but does not give information on subset of variable. Please help me sort out my confusion.

Thank you
Sajama
