Dear Sir,

I am currently working on Nepal_NPKR7HDT datasets. But I noticed that there is no data for children 36 months and above for all vaccinations. I can see missing status for all vaccination status for the children >36 months.
I was hoping I can get basic vaccine uptake data for the children up to 60 months.
It would be great if someone gives me suggestion how to carry on or why it is the case!

Thank you in advance for your kind support.

Yours faithfully,
Phyumar

In DHS 7, the DHS Program has restricted the age group for whom the vaccination data is collected to be children under 3 rather than children under 5 as the indicators for vaccination are typically for children age 12-23 or 24-35 months old. The recent Nepal survey was one of the DHS 7 surveys that used this restricted age group.
