Hello Shireen,

yes, I am using the survey package. I am able to reproduce the results in table 15.5.1 of the fianl report from 2011 for other variables than BMI (like education).
Besides, I can reproduce 13.5.6 in the final report from 2017, including the number of observations per BMI category.

Therefore, I think the problem is really the BMI variable in my dataset from 2011.
Do you have any other idea what might cause the higher number of missing values? Are some values imputed?

It would also be great if you commented on my question regarding the exclusion of pregnant women in my last message.

Best
Sarah
