I am using variables v414i to l in R software from Armenia DHS 2015-2016 round 7. After importing the file, there seem to be a high proportion of missing in this group of variables - around 40%.

The question is asked only for children living in the household. I would like to know if the missing, and what proportion, is due to a skip pattern or due to non response?

Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

In this file, age in months is hw1. If you tabulate hw1 by v414i (for example) you will see that the question only applied to children in the age range 0-23 months. I'm sure this restriction can also be found in the questionnaire, which is included in an appendix for all main reports.
