Hello All,
I am working on 2014 Ghana DHS. In the KR file, the variable v137 stands for "number of children under five years in household (de jure)".
However, I have 346 observations having a value of zero (0) for the variable v137. My understanding is that the 346 children under-5 years come from households with no children under-5 years which is not possible. Please can someone explain?
