We are having some trouble matching published results for use of mosquito nets by children. More specifically:

Indicator: Number of de facto children under age 5 who reported sleeping under an ITN the night before the survey (hv103 = 1 & hml16 in 0:4 & hml12 in 1:2)
Surveys: Cameroon, 2018 and Nigeria, 2018
Dataset: PR
Problem: when we cross tabulate hml7 and hml12, we can see that most people who slept under "other brand" (code 96) and "don't know brand" (code 98) are also classified as someone who slept under "only treated (itn) nets".

Question: how are they being classified as ITNs?

Thank you in advance
