No. of U5 in HH coded "0" ?. [message #22143] Sat, 06 February 2021 03:53 Go to previous message

I'm working with several child files in West Africa. I'm confused about V137 (number of children under 5 in household) when it is coded "0". There is at least one child in the household because he/she has a record. In fact, sometimes a respondent will have several children under 5, but V137 is still coded 0 (e.g., BF6 CASEID 460 5 2 has 3 U5s coded 0). If I'm looking at this correctly, do you have any guidance on how to manage the issue?
