I am working with DHS data from Sub-Saharan Africa from all years with HIV test results. When looking at the HIV test data, hiv03, there are codes that were unexpected and I cannot find their meaning from the country's publications. From my understanding, the coding should be 0 as HIV negative and 1 as HIV positive. There are also values of 2,3,7, and 8 in hiv03.

I've attached a file that denotes the frequency of these values by country and survey.
