I've start to work on my survey EDS for DRC 2013-2014.
But I need a help or the meaning of this result about the bmi standard deviation ( WHO ) : the negative value , the positive value , the height out of plausible limits and flagged cases.

I don't understand or get the meaning of these values of bmi

Please help me.
