Dear all,

I have found a discrepancy in variable v133 whose nature I cannot ascertain.

I have found that for some individuals with the same v106 (highest type of school reached) and v107 (highest grade completed in that stage), the v133 value can differ by one year, even though v133 should be based only on v106-v107 through the computation described in the DHS-VII recode, is that correct? Or are there other variables that I haven't identified which provide additional nuance (e.g. type of secondary school chosen, etc.), that have an effect on the choice of "x" and "y" in the calcuation of v133, and that may explain the discrepancy?
