1 Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys Data Processing Workshop MICS Dictionary and Forms MICS Data Processing Workshop

2 Questionnaire Types There are four types of questionnaires: –Household –Women (age ) –Children (age 0 - 4) –Men (age 15 – 49)

3 Identification Items

4 Module Naming Conventions Each questionnaire module corresponds to a dictionary record A record’s name is MODXX, where XX is the module’s code/abbreviation; for example, –MODWS = Water and Sanitation Module –MODCM = Child Mortality Module

5 Repeating Modules There are six repeating modules: –Household listing –Education –Insecticide-treated nets –Female genital cutting –Birth history –Maternal mortality They are stored as repeating records

6 Dictionary Item Naming Conventions Dictionary items are named for –Their module –Their number Question 3 in the HL module is named –HL3 The next slide describes the exception to this rule

7 Source and Response Questions A few questions have two parts –1 st part is the source of the response –2 nd part is the response Questions stored in two variables –Source has letter A as a suffix For example, question 3 in the MN module MN2A. H OW MANY WEEKS OR MONTHS PREGNANT WERE YOU WHEN YOU FIRST RECEIVED ANTENATAL CARE FOR THIS PREGNANCY ? R ECORD THE ANSWER AS STATED BY RESPONDENT. Weeks1 __ __ Months2 0 __ DK998

8 Dictionary Subitems CSPro allows you to redefine an item into subitems Therefore, a subitem is a portion of an item To visually see the impact of this, press We make extensive use of subitems Both the item and the subitem can be referenced in an application; however, if we’ve created a subitem, that’s normally what we’ll use The situations in which we use them are described in the next four slides

9 Multiple Response Questions Interviewer can circle more than one code These variables are stored as alphanumeric variables whose width is the total possible number of responses There are many multiple response questions, e.g., MN2 In addition, for each possible response there is a corresponding subitem whose name is the variable’s name + the response code For example, the six possible responses (A, B, C, F, G, X) to MN2 are stored in subitems MN2A, MN2B, MN4C, MN2F, MN2G and MN2X.

10 Date Variables (D/M/Y) Date fields with several parts (e.g., day, month, and year) are stored in one variable The variable has a subitem for each part of the date The subitems are named using the module, question number, and D, M, or Y –e.g., the day of household interview is stored in subitem HH5D

11 Unit and Number Variables (U/N) A few questions have two parts where the –1 st part is the form of the response (i.e., the units) –2 nd part is the response (i.e., the number) These responses are stored in one item, split into two subitems, which have U and N suffixed to their names Example: question MN25 has –MN25U: time in hours or days, months (1 digit) –MN25N: number of hours or days (2 digits)

12 Level and Grade Variables (A/B) In the ED module, three questions record level and grade Stored in an item with two subitems –Level subitem has A suffix –Grade subitem has B suffix Example: question 4 of ED module –ED4A - highest level (1 digit) –ED4B - highest grade at that level (2 digits)

13 Coding Conventions

14 Dictionary and Form Modifications Work on the Form File! Add/remove modules and items to dictionary Modify item characteristics if necessary –e.g., item labels, lengths, and types; and value labels and ranges Update forms to reflect dictionary changes Reorder flow of items (if items added) Reposition items on the form (to match the flow)
