Hi I'm trying to calculate anemia levels from the DHS India 1998-1999 data for women using the IR file. While for the later rounds, anemia is classifed as mild, moderate, severe, and no anemia, the 1998-1999 reports hemoglobin levels in g/dl.

A summary of the variable s902 reveals values range from 0 to 992, with a mean of 117.21 These are imposssibly large values. Is it something to do with the unit of the variable?

Would appreciate any clarification.
