Hi all,
I am looking to compare spouses views on who makes decisions in their households but I am a bit confused by the men's data. In the men's dataset for Zambia, I realised that the label for the decision-making variables says "person who should have greater say on respondent's health care " while the women's dataset says "person who usually decides on respondent's health care". I then thought these were responses to different questions but then when I look at the men's questionnaire, the question is worded like that of the women.

I am therefore wondering if these are just different coding to the same question or if they are actually different.

Thanks in advance
