Dear DHS Program team,

I am struggling with the 2018 Nigeria KR file. I thought I had understood from the guide to DHS statistics that in the KR file, the child is the unit of observation and therefore a caseid is assigned to each single child. Now I realized that the caseid seems to be on the children's mothers.

I checked by sorting the Stata file by v001 v002 v003 - children of the same mother have the same caseid in this dataset.

Where is the error in my reasoning? Thank you in advance for your help.

Best,
Fabienne
