In reviewing much of the literature on child marriage -- which relies heavily on DHS data -- I noticed that most statistics use women aged 20-24 to calculate proportions married before exact age 15.

Is there a sampling or methodological reason why one could not use women ages 15-19 for calculating national-level prevalence estimates?

Thank you in advance!
