I am working on the KR file of the Myanmar DHS 2015-16 in order to investigate factors affecting the place of birth (M15). The total number of live births in the five years processing the survey is 4,286 according to the DHS report (Ministry of Health and Sports and ICF, 2017, p.133). However, the KR file (children <5 of interviewed women file) has 4,815 cases and I am wondering what a difference is between this 4,286 and 4,815. There is no missing data as to the place of delivery. It would be appreciated if some of you answer my question. Thank you.
