I have some other questions about some IDHS 2017 variables.

Firstly, I just wanted to confirm that s413d (signs of danger or complications) is the same variable as s414d (complications during pregnancy)in the 2012 dataset? (I'm pretty confident the variable refers to a question which is the same in both years, but the variable as well as the description appears to have changed which is confusing)

Secondly, I was hoping for some further clarification on this variable which I think might be a translation error.

s413df = signs of danger or complications: vomiting and numb in face or headache with con
Q413D in the Women's Survey answer F is "Bengkak kaki, tangan dan wajah atau sakit kepala disertai kejang" which I translate to 'swollen feet, hands and face or sore head with convulsions'

While similar, these are clearly different so I am thinking that they are supposed to relate to the same answer? Is it possible this is a poor translation? Or is this in fact a separate response? This same answer was not available in 2012 and an English translation of the 2017 questionnaire hasn't been released as far as I can tell to cross check.

Many thanks for any clarification that can be offered,
