I think in the meantime I found the answer to my question- in another part of the report I noticed a mention that only 1/3 of households were selected for anthropometry data collection. I have two additional questions regarding this issue:

1)Does "no measurement found in the household" in women's recode always mean that a given woman lived in a household that was not selected for anthropometry data collection? I conduct cross-country analysis so I would like to make sure that it is safe to assume that across surveys.

2)How should one apply sample weights when calculating measures of height using surveys for which only a subsample of the sample of women aged 15-49 was chosen for anthropometry data collection? Can one simply use v005? My worry is that this sample weight reflects the probability of a given woman being selected for the interview in general and not for the interview about anthropometry.

I would be grateful for your help.
