Dear DHS users,

I'm using 2010 Burundi DHS data and I'm interested in malaria.
In the DHS database (children recode), there are missing values for the child's age (HW1, in the households) in months. After weighting cases, I found 4282 children with missing values for age in months. The DHS report (page 153) shows, however, that all the 7418 children have their age in months.
I used also the variable HC1 (for interviewed women) and I found that only 3873 children have their age in months.

How can I get the correct numbers of children in age classes as found in the DHS report? What is the variable age used?

Thank you.
