(I am reposting to the Child Health forum to see if anyone might know the answer to this question here):

For DHS Madagascar 2008, was child weight data not collected for some reason? (missing variables hw2, hw7-12, hw71 hw 72)?

Thank you!

Dear User,
The scales used for measuring the weight of children did not have enough precision therefore all weight related variables for children were set to not applicable in the recode data file.
