Dear DHS Experts, I am using 2016 Ethiopia DHS for examining the effects of female genital mutilation on Perinatal mortality. But, the challenges that I faced are: The number of eligible women in 2016 EDHS were 15,683 while the number of wome asked for female genital mutilation module were 7,822 as shown in table 16.2. So, why? Did all eligible women of aged 15-49 years asked for FGM or not? How can I creat a variable female genital mutilation categorized as type 1, type 2, type 3 and not circumcised? How can I get the result of figure 16.1 in Ethiopia DHS 2016? How can I create a dichotomise variable of perinatal mortality as women aged 15-49 years having perinatal death as yes, if no label as no?
Thank you for your help every one!!
Sincerly yours, Hassen A.
