Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
In DHS VI children’s result of measurement is a combination of the measurements of the child’s weight and height. All chidren with a valid weight and height are recorded as ‘0’ (measured). When the weight and height could not be collected because the child was ‘not present’, ‘refused’ or because of ‘another’ reason this variable is set to 3, 4 and 6 respectively. When the response to either the weight or the height is missing this variable is set to ‘missing’ and in all other cases to‘8.
