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 household members under age 5 who were potential subjects for height and weight measurement, HWCAGEDAYS (HC1A) reports their age in days at the time of the household interview.
This information is useful for calculating malnutrition indicators such as height-for-age (stunting) and weight-for-age (underweight). The DHS Recode manuals report that the age in days is calculated from the century day code of the date of interview (HWCCDCMEAS (HC20)) minus the century day code of the date of birth of the young household member (HWCBIRTHCDC (HC32A)).
