I would like to ask you some questions about your pregnancies and all the children you have given birth to.
3. Have you ever given birth to a child?
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.
If question 2 has code 1, then ask the woman whether she has given birth to any
children. If she replies not yet immediately, do not record code 2 at once, but try to prompt her
about deliveries in which the babies died after some hours, some days or some weeks that she
accidentally or intentionally forgot. If the interviewer, after the trial, is sure that she has never
given birth to any children, can move on to question 25 on the next page.
This question is asked about live born children, not children born dead.
Question post text
if the answer code is 2, skip to the question 25
Children born alive: is a child born with signs of life (crying, breathing, heart beating,
movement of muscles) even with children who died after that a very short time.
Child born dead: is a child born without any signs of life.
Miscarriage: A pregnant woman, who during the period from the first month to the sixth
month of pregnancy, but the foetus comes out is called miscarriage. If the foetus is over 6 months
old, that is called premature delivery and should be listed in one of the two above cases.
