I merged the women's, men's, household member, and HIV testing datasets from the 2014-2015 Rwanda survey and then subset the HIV+ population > 15 years of age. Among this group, there are 3 men and 1 woman who are not included in the men's or women's datasets, respectively. For all 4 of them, the HIV05 weight=0. Is this correct, or did I somehow merge the files incorrectly? Why would the weight=0?

I also noticed that the three men are the only HIV+ respondents with height and weight data. Was there very little overlap between the subset of participants who were tested for HIV and those who were measured for anthropometrics? I noticed there was much greater overlap between these groups in the Burundi 2010 survey.

Thank you!
