A response from data processing specialist, Bert Themme:

The selection criteria for men's anemia testing in surveys is often a subset for all households. Thus for example every second or third household is selected for men's anemia testing. In this case, the selection is a random sample of every second or third household in the cluster (randomly selected before fieldwork in the cluster starts), which causes the low overall response.

When we produce couple tables, we always use the man's weight.
