For the year 2015, a lot of decision variables like DECFAMVISIT, DECLEAVETOWN have a lot of entries in the not in universe. I wanted to clarify it is because this data is only asked from specific houses which are included for state modules. My study focuses on these decision variables as the variables of interest. Should I drop variables which are NIU or is there another way to resolve the issue. Would be very thankful for your help. Also wanted to confirm this happens only for 2015 not for previous surveys ?
