Dear experts in DHS data,
We analysed and drafted paper using two recent DHS datasets. We faced direct rejection our paper from the editor without sending for peer review process on the basis of anticipatory analysis(the analysis is strongly biased by anticipatory analysis (see Hoem, 2006), procedures that seek to explain current behaviour by future outcomes (anticipatory analysis) constitute "a widespread but problematic approach because they disturb the temporal order of events"). Is this important bias to consider while analysing DHS data, how can we handle this?

Kind regards, Rk
