Greetings DHS-experts,

For my research interest I'm using BDHS-2014 KR spss file.
I need to create a variable "employment status of women" which will contain 2 categories as "housewife" and "working women".
Should I consider V719 which shows women work for family,another person,self employed?should I consider women work for family as "housewife"?
Or Should I consider V716's 0=housewife,missing & don't know=missing and all others = working women?

Thanks in Advance
