I'm currently doing research using the 2015 Afghan DHS and I have a couple questions surrounding fever prevalence and how it was recorded in the survey. Firstly, how did families determine if their child had a fever? Was it through use of thermometers, feeling their child's head, knowledge of their child having a certain illness? Also, does anyone who conducted the survey know about recent outbreaks of the flu or if the surveys were conducted during a flu season that may have peaked the prevalence of fever among populations? Lastly, there was a high number of missing data pertaining to fever prevalence among populations (75.4%) How do you recommend me going about using this data knowing that there is such a high volume of missing data?
