1 MICS4 Data Processing Workshop Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys Data Processing Workshop MICS Dictionary and Forms

2 Questionnaire Types There are four types of questionnaires: –Household –Women (age ) –Children (age 0 - 4) –Men (age 15 – 49) MICS4 Data Processing Workshop

3 Identification Items MICS4 Data Processing Workshop

4 Module Naming Conventions Each questionnaire module corresponds to a dictionary record A records name is MODXX, where XX is the modules code/abbreviation; for example, –MODWS = Water and Sanitation Module –MODCM = Child Mortality Module MICS4 Data Processing Workshop

5 Repeating Modules There are five (six) repeating modules: –Household listing –Education –Insecticide-treated nets –Child labour –Female genital cutting –Birth history They are stored as repeating records MICS4 Data Processing Workshop

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 MICS4 Data Processing Workshop

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 4 in the AN module –AN4A – lying or standing up –AN4 – height MICS4 Data Processing Workshop

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 weve created a subitem, thats normally what well use The situations in which we use them are described in the next four slides MICS4 Data Processing Workshop

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 variables 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. MICS4 Data Processing Workshop

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 MICS4 Data Processing Workshop

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) MICS4 Data Processing Workshop

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) MICS4 Data Processing Workshop

13 Coding Conventions MICS4 Data Processing Workshop

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) MICS4 Data Processing Workshop
