Hi,
My co-researcher and I are looking for some data mentioned in this Ugandan government paper (http://npa.go.ug/wp-content/uploads/NDPII-Final.pdf). On pages 30-31 it says that "The major causes of maternal mortality include; haemorrhage (42 percent), obstructed or prolonged labour (22 percent) and complications from abortion (11 percent)". It does not cite a source for this claim but the entire preceding paragraph cites various DHS surveys.
However, we looked at the various DHS survey datasets cited and cannot find data about cause of maternal death in any of them in Stata. The entries under mm11 are all completely empty. Are we missing something, or does this data simply not exist for the Ugandan datasets?
Many thanks.
