Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
This column identifies any adult members of the household who have ever worked or been trained in a health-related field. Each household member who has ever worked/trained in a health-related field should be marked as “yes” in this column. The interviewer should prompt by giving examples of health workers: “This could be someone who has received a medical degree, or who worked in a hospital or health clinic (either caring for patients or doing anything else), or who dispenses medicines to people suffering from a health problem”. The short questionnaire on Health Occupations (section 0900) should then be asked directly to each individual so identified, using additional copies of the questionnaire if more than one person has been identified here.
In order to determine whom to interview, I need to know who lives at this address. Let me assure you that any information you provide is strictly confidential. I would like the age, sex, education, marital status and relationship to you of each of the members of this household who live here. Please include people who may presently be in an institution due to their health (hospital, nursing home etc.) for a short or long period.
All the males in the househo9ld should be entered first, from oldest to youngest. All the females should then be entered, from the oldest to the youngest female.
Don't forget to include yourself in the appropriate order.
