I see that the couples recode contains only those individual which mutually declared to be together.
However, with reference to the Afghanistan DHS 2015, I see that the woman individual recode counts 29,000 (circa) and the couples recode only 10,000.

Interestingly, keeping married woman with non-missing information on their partners (age and education) from the individual women recode leads to a sample of 28,000.

I do not understand this massive discrepancy between the two recodes.
