I have a question about the missing information on the variable about women's height in the women's recode (variable v438). For example, in Uganda 2016 round, there is 66.72% of values missing. Variable v447 suggests that this information is missing because of "no measurement found in the household". Could you explain what that means? I went through the forum and the only explanation I found was regarding the missing information on height in children's recode and I cannot figure out why there would missingingess for women. This is especially as in the report for that country-round, it is mentioned that all women 15-49 were eligible to be measured and that for 98% of eligible women height information was collected. That is not in line with what is in the dataset.

I would be greateful for clarifying.
Thanks!
Ewa
