Now I would like to make a complete list of all the children you have given birth to during your life. Start with the first child
9. How long did [name] live?
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.
The interviewer should try to ask and record the time duration when the child was
born live to his/her death. If the child lived for a very short time, his/her age is calculate in
minutes, hours, days or weeks old.
Here we don’t list names of all children in question 4 before asking questions
5 to 12, but we have to ask all questions from 4 to 12 for each child before proceeding to the next
child. The interviewer should make the respondent understand and only talk about their natural
children. Not respond for those living in the house but who are not their children (in case of a
shared household). The interviewer should also make the respondent understand that all
responses will be kept confidential, especially for an adopted child the mother doesn’t want
anyone to know about. It is stressed that the interviewer should try to make contact and interview
the selected woman without the presence of any third person.
