Hi there, I observed that 22 countries out of the 34 SSA countries I am working with have 50% or more of the BMI data missing for adult females. I am aware that in these countries BMI data was collected by randomly sampling a smaller subset of the larger DHS sample. However, I was wondering why fewer people were sampled for BMI in recent years. Is it due to reasons of cost or something else?
