Following is another response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

One of the good things about DHS data is that it is not over-edited. In a large survey, some unusual things come up. For example, in many surveys there will be a handful of people who attended school for many years but didn't graduate, because they did not advance from one grade to the next in the prescribed pattern. You can decide whether to drop those cases or to force a reconciliation, by reducing the number of years attended or by saying they did graduate. It is possible that there was a coding error, but if something like this was not flagged and checked during fieldwork, it's up to you to deal with it.
