I am working on DPT3 immunization coverage among 8 different countries and wish to use children aged 4 months to 23 months as denominators. Unfortunately, in most countries, more than 50% of the variable "age in months" is missing. Is there a systematic reason why this is so? Anyone else has this problem?

P.S. I asked this question in the general forum and was told to look at the DHS guide to statistics which I did. But there is no explanation for this in there. Thank you.
