We are interested in analyzing low birth weight data. We are looking at the table which combines children with a reported birth weight with mother's perception of their child's size at birth such as "very small" or "small". We are wondering if these categories are mutually exclusive. Therefore, if a child is weighed than they would be included in the less than 2.5 kg or 2.5 kg or more columns and if they were not weighed they would be recorded with mother's perception as "very small", "smaller than average", etc.
