The variables mentioned, have "NA" (not applicable) after the variable name in the labels. A variable is not applicable for a respondent either because the question was not asked in the survey, or because the question was not asked of the respondent due to the flow or skip pattern of the questionnaire. Please take a closer look at the questionnaire for the country you are working with - all questionnaires are in the appendix of the final report.

You may also go to IPUMS-DHS to access documentation on each variable. Once you click on the name of a variable, you are presented with a series of tabs. Select the "Universe," tab to get details on who was asked the question. If you select the "Survey Text" tab, you will get the exact wording of the question, with a link to other questions in that section of the questionnaire.
