Dear DHS Representative,

I am working with the Pakistan 1990 dataset, specifically PKHW21FL.DTA and had a question about the stunting indicators (hc70). Using the DHS definition to find the share of stunted, it shows a close to 0% (the value for later years are higher). The hunch is that the stunting variable wasn't recorded for all the individuals and is maybe missing for some sub-groups in 1990, but wanted to see if there is any documentation about how we should understand how the survey data was generated.

Thank you!
