Dear DHS experts,
I am using Ethiopian KR file for the whole round to examine the effect of mother's characteristics on child outcome under five years old. Since I am new to DHS data I don't really understand whether KR file has one child per mother or may contain more than 1 child for a mother. What I need is one child for each mother, how can I keep only 1 child with his/her mother in KR file in Stata?
Specifically, I am looking at HAZ, WHZ, and WAZ scores as a child outcome. is it the case that only the latest birth was measured for anthropometry i.e. just one child for each mother?

I like to use anthropometry of the latest birth instead of all births for a mother.

Kind regards
