I am using the DHS VI for the first time, my interest is Association between anemia and possible determinants among children aged 6-59 months in Namibia. I am using dataset KR. I am confused about following details:

1. Is hw1 the correct children age variable to use for my analysis?

2. The report indicates 2303 children where tested for anemia, but when i tab hw57 i get only about 1500 children. While hw1 give about 1900 and b4 give about 5000.

3. I would like to use malaria information for my analysis too, i find many questions regarding the use of bed nets and ant-malaria medicine, how can i use the malaria information in my analysis? do i need to merge all the questions regarding malaria?
