I am using 2004 and 2010 DHS data for Malawi. My analysis involves the birth weight variable, m19. I understand that birth weight is measured in grams because the variable description says " birth weight (kilos - 3 dec.)". I have values like 200, 300,1100, 2840,6600, 7000, 8000, 9200. My question is: Can birth weight be as low as 200g, 300g or as high as 7000g, 8000g, or 9200g?
