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 whether the woman has been pregnant. If she says no immediately, the
interviewer should record code 2 at once but try to prompt about miscarriages that she
accidentally or intentionally forgot or she does not want to remember. If the interviewer, after
prompting, is sure that she has never been pregnant, then move on to question 30 on the next
Question post text
if the answer code is 2, skip to the question 30
