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.
For surviving children born in the three to five years before the survey, HWWEIGHT (HW2) reports the child's weight as measured by DHS personnel. HWWEIGHT values are reported in tenths of a kilogram, to preserve one kilogram decimal place without requiring the use of a decimal point. Dividing the HWWEIGHT value by 10 will yield the child's measured weight in kilograms.
