I am assessing whether I can use the Nigeria DHS 2018 data on Sickle cell anaemia trait (Carriers).

I know the survey tests for haemoglobin levels to identify anaemia, but I can not identify the children sickle cell anaemia status in the data. It was presented in the NDHS2018 full report.

hw56 captured the adjusted haemoglobin levels, while hw57 captured the anaemia level but I can't find any variable on sickle cell disease or sickle cell traits.

Can anyone kindly help out

Thank you
