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.
For women who gave birth in the last three to five years, ANIRON_ALL (M45_x) indicates whether they took iron tablets or syrup during the pregnancy.
ANIRON_ALL consists of a set of up to six separate variables, covering the most recent birth (ANIRON_01) up to, potentially, the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., ANIRON_02, ANIRON_03, ANIRON_04, ANIRON_05, and ANIRON_06) during the reference period prior to the survey. If ANIRON_ALL is included in a data extract, all these separate variables are included in a researcher's data file.
For most surveys, this information on taking iron supplements during pregnancy was collected for only the most recent birth (ANIRON_01). Surveys in which the data were collected for additional births are noted in the comparability section.
