Hello,

I am using the Namibian DHS 2013 to look at hypertension and I am beginning by matching my tables in STATA with the tables in the final report to ensure I am using the right dataset.

For Table 17.1 of the Namibia 2013 DHS the table include 'Percentage measured for blood pressure^1'. I wondered if anyone would be able to advise me which variable was used to determine this, as there were three measurements taken and different numbers consented each time. I have tried to create tables with a number of the consent or measurement variables but I have not been able to get the numbers to match. The column heading in the table does have the superscript 1 although I haven't been able to find this explained or detailed in the footnotes of the table.

Any suggestions for the variable that would be used would be much appreciated, thank you :)
