I am working with the Couple Recode from Angola 2015-2016 and I am not sure how should I work if there is some inconsistency among data. To be specific, what to do with flag variables for example - V227 Flag for last period (V226), even though I am not using variable V226, I would like to ask if I should keep the data if they have some flag or if I should work without them? I am afraid that the data won't me reliable if for example Respondent reported her last period was before her last birth, but she had never
given birth.

Could you help me with that please?
