Postpartum check while still in facility (Benin) [message #18291] Wed, 30 October 2019 08:12

I am trying to find the variable which holds response to question 439 in the women's questionnaire on the 2017-8 Benin DHS. The question in French is: "Combien de temps apr├Ęs l'accouchement a eu lieu le premier examen?"
This I take to mean the time that elapsed between the birth and the first check (on woman, while still in the facility where birth took place - based on Q438 skip pattern)

The only variable in the IR dataset that appears to correspond to is m63_1. However, the name/label of this variable is "how long before discharging respondent health check took place"? So this would seem to mean the time between the first check and the discharge, rather than the time between the birth and the first check.

Can you confirm whether variable m63_1 holds the values for question 439, and in that case, whether the variable name is incorrect?

Many thanks!
