As part of this survey, we are asking people all over the country to take an anemia test. Anemia is a serious health problem that usually results from poor nutrition, infection, or chronic disease. This survey will assist the government to develop programs to prevent and treat anemia.
We ask that all children born in 2005 or later take part in anemia testing in this survey and give a few drops of blood from a finger or heel. The equipment used to take the blood is clean and completely safe. It has never been used before and will be thrown away after each test.
The blood will be tested for anemia immediately, and the result will be told to you right away. The result will be kept strictly confidential and will not be shared with anyone other than member of our survey team.
Do you have any questions?
You can say yes to the test, or you can say no. It is up to you to decide.
Will you allow (name of child) to participate in the anemia test?
Granted, but no signature
Consent statement not read

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.
HEMOCONSENT (HW52) indicates whether permission was granted for the person's blood to be drawn and tested for hemoglobin level (as an indicator of anemia) or, if not, why not. Interviewers read a statement about hemoglobin testing and requested permission to draw and test the individual's blood for hemoglobin level; blood was drawn only if consent was given by the persons themselves (if adults) or by a parent or guardian (if a minor).
