Hi there
I have now looked at a cross-tab of the converted birth month and birth year.
It looks like this:

From the EDHS 2016 report, interview data collection took place from January-June 2016.
If this is the case, then some of these birth months must be incorrect for 2016.

Also it looks like full data are only available for 2012-2014 from the table above.
