I'm working on a multi-country analysis that utilizes place of delivery (variable m15) and have found small issues in two datasets that I could use help clarifying.

- In the Mozambique 2011 DHS, is there a reason why the place of birth was imputed for more than a third of respondents? Can you provide any information on how this data was imputed?
- In the Tanzania 2004 DHS, some of the response option labels are repeated while there are no "private" facilities. I am assuming some of the duplicates are supposed to say "private". For example, referal/ spec. hospital and district hospital are both listed twice. Is there a way to get clarification on these value set labels?

Many thanks for any information you can provide!
