How to Skip Questions Based on Multiple Answers

Hello All,

I am designing a survey for an impact evaluation in Kenya and am trying to
figure out how to skip a question based on multiple answers, not just one.
I realize that one can use the code ${variable} = 'answer' but an wondering
what code I use if I want a certain group of questions to be asked if the
orginal question was answersed in more than one way.

In my specific case it is asking the impact of the event on the family's
economic status and if the response is a degree that is negative, the
survey asks what strategy the family used to face the event and then if the
household recovered economically. I'd like the last two questions to be
asked only if the response to the impact question is "slightly negative" or
"negative". I understand that I could break up the question into pos/neg
and then the degree of pos/neg but since situations like this occur often
I'd rather save the future cleaning that would be necessary in Stata.

Thank you!

You can place arbitrary Boolean expressions in relevance. For example:

selected(${sex}, 'female') and not(selected(${birthctrl}, 'none'))
would be relevant if a female specified they use some of form of birth
control (not 'none'). You can use 'and', 'or', and 'not' with appropriate
parentheses to set order of evaluation.
