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 male household members who were potential subjects for height, weight, and hemoglobin measurement, HWMUNDER18 (HB50) indicates whether they were under or over age 18 at the time of the interview.
The information in this variable was used by DHS personnel to determine whether a male household member needed consent from a parent/caretaker to conduct hemoglobin measurements.
