I am using BDHS-14 KR dataset. I want to learn about the data pattern of KR file.
I have read about KR file in DHS website where it says in about 5 lines. Which didn't clear my concept.

I want to know that,

"If I work for maternal and child (under age 5) malnutrition, can I use this?
I mean, suppose, I got 20% underweight mother and 36% stunted children under age 5.
Now, can I say that, there were 20% mothers were underweight and 36% children under age 5 were stunted, in the same household. ?"

What I also want to know, that, is this dataset indicate a household from which a mother and child under age 5 were interviewed?

Here, the total observation number were 7886. Then is this indicate that, there were 7886 households where from each household
a mother and a child under age 5 were interviewed?

I wrote same thing at different patterns, so that, you may capture my question.
Sorry for elaborating. I will be greatful, if anyone clear me this.
Thank you in advance.
