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

The variable you are referring to is shb18d (you left out the "h"). It is not quite true that ALL the values are 108, but about 55% are. There are also some implausibly small and large values.

Thanks for noting this. We will look into it.
