I'd like to ask a few questions about Indonesia DHS.

1. Prelacteal question in IDHS 2017 (m55z_1) shows that 100% respondents give prelacteal feeding (file attached). This seems strange as the Indonesian DHS report mentions that prelacteal feeding prevalence was only 44%. Previous datasets did not show any problem with the same var. The m55_1 makes more sense (46%, unweighted) but the question is not exactly the same. So I just need to confirm, is m55_1 the prelacteal variable in IDHS 2017? Kindly correct me if I'm mistaken.

2. Religion variable (v130) shows no observation in IDHS 2012 and 2017, but it does in previous datasets (attached). Is there any way I could access it?

3. There is a question "Were you given an MCH book for this pregnancy" (409B) in IDHS 2012 and 2017 questionnaire but I couldn't the Stata variable. Tried looking it up in the recode guide book as well but no luck. Is there any way I could access it? Apologies if I missed it.

Looking forward to your help. Thanks a lot.
