Hello
I am trying to understand the dataset file structure. I want anyone to explain me why the birth column repeats several times (BIDX$01 to BIDX$20), same thing for the Height and Weight standard measures, they are repeated six times or more in the same dataset file.

Would appreciate your response.

Thanks

The Height and Weight standard measures can be found in Individual Record file for the 2014 wave (country Egypt)!
