Dear DHS Representative,

I am working with the Pakistan 2006 dataset, specifically PKPR53FL.DTA and had a question about the education indicators. For individuals recorded between ages 5 - 18, only ~16000 out of ~230,000 students are recorded as being currently in school (var hv121). It seemed odd because the numbers for the 1990, 2012 and 2017 are much closer in estimate (eg., ~21000 out of ~34000 in 2012). The difference in 2006 is a factor of 10.

In addition, there is discrepancy in the 2006 data where observations for highest education attainment indicator can be primary school or higher, but other schooling related indicators (hv12x) are 0.

I could not find anything in the documentation that explains this discrepancy, and wanted to reach out to seek some clarification on these variables.

Thank you!
