Respondent’s Socio Demographic Characteristics
I would like to start by asking you some background questions before asking you questions on your health. This information is confidential and will only be used for research purposes.
What is your current marital status?
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.
Ask this question without reading the options to the respondent. If the response does not match any of the options e.g. “single”, read the options to the respondent and ask him/her to choose the option that best reflects his/her current marital status. For example, if the respondent is currently married (but was divorced in the past), the option “currently married” should be recorded.
