"This measure was created using three survey questions: whether the child has had a toothache in the past 12 months, whether the child had bleeding gums in the past 12 months, or whether the child had decayed teeth/cavities in the past 12 months. Missing values due to non-response or a “don’t know” response are not included in the denominator for calculations of prevalence estimates and weighted population counts. In the majority of cases, the proportion of missing values is less than 2%"
