Dear all,

I have been having a great amount of trouble locating the height records for all children within the Indonesian DHS .dta files. I have been working within STATA and I have used the DHS standard recode manual (VI) to identify the variables which pertain to children's heights (variable: hw3). I noticed that within each variable for children's height within the Births' data - Birth's Recode (BR) and Children's Data - Children's Recode (KR) files, the data for heights is recorded as missing (.), yet the variable for children's birth weights (m19) contains data.

I was wondering if anyone had any advice on where to locate these values or if there is a particular explanation as to why they are recorded as missing within these .dta files?

Thank you,
