Hi
I am doing research on Obesity and Occupation. Using South African DHS 2016. On my sample, over 40% of the observations does not have BMI value. Please assist me what is the most appropriate way to deal with this missing data. ? Should I exclude the observations or impute the missing values. If imputation is the option, kindly advise on the technique that will be be most appropriate.

Kindly assist, I have red some similar questions but I didn't get quite a fitting answer for my problem..

Thanks for your assistance.
