I am starting to look at the geographic data and noticed that e.g. ZWGE42FL has some observations with LATNUM==0 and LONGNUM==0. Is this an error or is the coding such that if data is missing, then latitude and longitude are assigned values of zero? I am planning on merging all the rounds for all countries in which there is geographical data for my analyses, so I need to figure out what kind of errors or coding inconsistencies there are.
