Dear All,
I am running some exploratory analysis on the Kenya 2014 DHS. However, more than half (16,790) of the values in g102 (ever circumcised) is missing which seems strange. This missing category in addition to the Yes (4,377) and No(9,912) binary levels brings the denominator to 31,079. The same size (31,079) was observed across the key socio-demographic variables (v013,v025,v024,v190) compared to 14,289 with no missing values in "g102"-ever circumcised . I realized this is way more than the actual survey size of 14,625 reported in the DHS 2014 report. Even after svysetting in stata, this value(31,079) does not change. I have reloaded the dataset and looked up previous threads for similar comments before posting this.

Kindly assist.
