Hi,
I want to find out the ANC coverage of Bangladesh, using BDHS 2014.
First I have applied the stata command """ keep if v208 !=0 & v208 !=. """; so, women with no birth since last 5 years disappeared. The final women were 6855.
Then I saw the tabulated number of ANC of Qualified doctor (m2a_1), there, ANC was covered by doctors in 57.9% cases with total 4627 women. [Which correctly matched with the BDHS'14 final report]
So, there were more than 2200 missing values.
Now, can anyone tell me what these missing values (2200 values) indicating? I mean, why there are such a huge values got missing?
Thank you
