Hello
I have also noticed that there are no height and weight measurement results or indicators in the PR and KR files for the 2019 dataset (Ghana), The labels "hw70 and hc70" are missing in KR and PR. The labels with "hw'' is only upto "hw57 in KR and the "hc"with " hc68 in PR. Please, help.

Thank you

Following is a response from DHS staff member Tom Pullum:

The Ghana 2019 survey was MIS, not DHS. In general, malaria surveys do not include anthropometry
