Hi DHS experts,

Could anyone help me explain why the variable hc1 (child's age) has fewer observations that the age variable i generate by subtracting the date of the survey (v008) from the date of birth of the child (b3) i.e v008-b3. the later approaches the sample size for mothers. I need to know the difference to aid my analysis. My Unit of analysis is a mother whose child is alive and stays in the household.
